REQUEST FOR CITY RECORDS
It is the policy of the City of Spanish Fort to provide copies of public documents in an expedient manner upon request. Upon receipt of the request by the Office of the City Clerk, the request is normally handled within seven working days. Such requests, particularly those involving a large volume of information, must be handled on a time-available basis so as not to compromise the City’s day-to-day operations.
To request records, a Request for City Records form must be completed, signed, and submitted in person to the office of the City Clerk. The City assesses a reproduction fee as follows:
$1.00 per page for records
$25.00 for a copy of the City's Subdivision Regulations
$35.00 for the Comprehensive Plan
$10.00 for a Zoning map
Due to the recent adoption of numerous amendments, the Spanish Fort Zoning Ordinance is currently unavailable for purchase. However, copies of various sections of the Zoning Ordinance may be requested, as needed. A link to the City's Comprehensive Plan may be found HERE.
Reasonable public access shall be granted to view records under the supervision of an employee in the City Clerk’s office.
Under Alabama law, e-mails are public records. If you do not want your e-mail released to a public records request, do not send electronic mail to this entity. Instead, contact the office by phone or in writing.
