Freedom of Information Act Request Form. Please complete the following form regarding Freedom of Information Act requests. The Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) is a state statute that provides the public the right to access government documents and records. FOIA is designed to ensure that the public has access to information about their government and its decision-making process. The law provides that a person can ask a public body for a copy of its records on a specific subject and the public body must provide those records, unless there is an exemption in the statute that protects those records from disclosure (for example: records containing information concerning trade secrets or personal privacy). The Village must generally comply with the request within 5 business days (5ILCS 140/3), unless the request is commercial in nature. Certain exceptions allow an additional 5 days. Copies of public records will be provided upon payment of any applicable copying or reproduction fees, as provided in Section IV (b) of the ILlinois Freedom of Information Act (5 ILS 140/4(b)). If requested, copies or records will be mailed after the Village received payment of the cost.
