Public Records Requests

Making a Request

Anyone interested in obtaining public records may do so by filling out the Open Public Records Act (OPRA) Request Form (PDF) and submitting it to the Town Clerk’s office. Completed forms can be submitted by fax to 973-535-7967 or by email.

A response will be made to the requester as soon as possible, but no later than seven business days after the request is received.

At that time, the requester will receive a response that will either:

  • Grant or deny access to the requested information
  • Seek clarification
  • Inform the requester of the approximate anticipated timeframe

Fees

Pursuant to N.J.S.A. 47:1A-1.1., there is no cost to have documents faxed or emailed to the requestor. Fees for copies are based upon the size of the document to be copied and may include $0.05 per page for letter-size pages, $0.07 per page for legal-size pages, and the actual costs for other materials (CD, DVD, etc.).

Delivery/postage fees may apply, depending upon the delivery type. A special service charge may apply, depending on the nature of the request.
