There are two ways to request information from the City of Vernon:
Since almost all of the City’s information is available through routine channels, you should always start by making an informal request. To do this, contact the department that you think might have the information you are looking for.
If the information you are seeking is not available through routine channels, then you may make a Formal FOI Request for records containing the information.
- Informal Request via Routine Channels
- Formal FOI Request
Your Formal FOI request should be made in writing and provide sufficient detail (see note below) to assist staff in locating and retrieving the records. You should also indicate whether you want to receive copies of the records, or if your want to view the records in person.
To help reduce fees and to minimize taxpayer expense, please narrow the scope of your request as much as possible. Also, you should try to specify a date range as our records date back more than a century.
You may choose to use our FOI Request Form, although it is not required to make a formal request. You may deliver, mail, fax or e-mail your FOI request to:
