How may I request a public record?

Any person may request a public record in person, in writing, by fax or by telephone. Upon receiving the request, a public official from the Village of Rutland will fulfill the request as soon as possible. This fulfillment time is factored based upon the record requested and the time needed to locate and extract the record from the Village archives repository. It is important to note the Village is comprised of part-time staff with limited support staff, which may result in delays in the fulfillment of public record requests.
