Public Records

The Montgomery County Treasurer’s Office strives to be as open and transparent to the public as possible. What follows is a basic description of who can ask for public records, what constitutes a public record, and how to make requests, as well as a listing of resources requesters may find helpful.

Under Ohio law, any person may request to inspect or obtain copies of public records, from any public office that keeps those records. Unless all or part of the record is exempt from release, the office must provide inspection at no cost, and copies records at the cost of the record to the office.  Arrangements for inspection or copies must be made within a reasonable period of time.

Unless the law specifies otherwise, a requester does not have to provide a reason for the request, provide his or her name, or make the request in writing. That said, however, a requester does have to be clear enough in making his or her request to reasonably identify the record he or she seeks. The office may also ask for any information it feels may assist in identifying and supplying requested records.

A “public record” is any document kept by a public office, in any form, which serves to document the organization, functions, policies, decisions, procedures, operations, or other activities of the office.
