The City Clerk’s Office maintains the official records of the City of Yuma government and responds to requests for public records on behalf of other City departments. Records specific to Police, Fire and Municipal Courts are not maintained by the City Clerk’s Office. Requests for those documents should be forwarded to the appropriate department.
Individuals wanting to view or purchase a copy of a City document may complete a Request for Public Records form and return to the City Clerk’s Office for processing. Completed forms may be returned electronically, via fax, mail or in person. The City Clerk’s Office responds to all requests promptly. The volume of information and complexity of each request dictates the response time. Copy charges for documents used for non-commercial purposes are 25 cents per page and 50 cents per page for documents used for commercial purposes. Individual prices apply to odd-sized documents, such as maps and plans, and for CDs and DVDs, and printed material.
