Complete the Standardized Request to Inspect Public Records Form and email to City Clerk Gina Gabbard at ggabbard@cityofindependence.org.  

  • Public agencies must respond to a request to inspect records within five business days; 
  • Only residents of the commonwealth as defined by KRS 61.870(10) may request public records; 
  • Any request must include a statement that the individual is a resident of the commonwealth; 
  • Updated open records policy must include both the mailing address and email address at which the custodian may receive requests; 
  • If the public agency has a website, it must publish its open records policy on the website as well as a copy of the OAG standardized form, though the public agency cannot require a citizen to use the form for a request and must accept a complete request in any form; and 
  • Resume in-person inspection for public records requested under the Act.
