Public Records Request
The first place to look for public records is our Online Records Search where you will be able to search, view, save and print public records. There is, of course, no charge for downloading records from the City website.
Making A Public Records Request
If you are unsuccessful in finding a record you can request the records from the City Clerk's Office by stopping by City Hall located at 160 Lake Avenue, Palm Coast, calling (386) 986-3713, or emailing the City Clerk. If your request for information can be sent to you via email and takes less than 20 minutes to prepare, there is no charge. For requests that require printed paper copies, 19 pages or less are free. For documents 20 pages or more, there is a 15¢ fee per page. For large format plans and maps (36" x 48") there is a $5.00 fee per plan/map, since they must be sent out to a commercial printer.
Please note, in accordance with Section 119.07, Florida Statutes, if the nature or volume of the public records requested to be inspected or copied requires extensive use of information technology resources and/or clerical or supervisory assistance by City personnel, a reasonable service charge, in addition to the actual cost of duplication, will be charged to the requestor. The service charge will be based on the cost actually incurred by the City as defined by law, for such extensive use of information technology resources or personnel.
By law, we cannot require that you give us your name, phone number, address or any other personal information when requesting a record. Also, we will not ask why you need or want a record. There may be situations when it will take time for City Employees to gather the information you requested. If you do not wish to give any personal information, in these circumstances you can simply contact City Hall either by phone or in person to see if your request has been completed.
