How Do I Request Public Data?

You may request data by completing a form. You may complete and submit the Data Request Form online. Alternately, an electronic form can be emailed, a printed form can be mailed to you, or you may pick up a form at City Hall.

 Data requests are to include:

  • You are making a request for public data under the Government Data Practices Act (Minnesota Statutes, Chapter 13).
  • Whether you would like to inspect the data, have copies of the data, or both.
  • A thorough description of the specific data you would like to inspect or have copied.
  • You are not required to identify yourself or explain the reason for your data request. However, depending on how you want us to process your request (if, for example, you want us to mail you copies of data), we may need some information about you. If you choose not to give us any identifying information, you will need to contact us to check on the status of your request. In addition, please keep in mind that if we do not understand your request and have no way to contact you, we will not be able to begin processing your request.
