Public Records

The City of New Albany maintains many records that are used in the administration and operation of the City. The records maintained by the City and the ability to access them are a means to provide trust between the general public and the City. The City maintains its records in a manner which allows the City to provide the general public prompt inspection of the City’s public records, and copies of these records within a reasonable amount of time during regular business hours. Copies of records may be requested by phone, e-mail, or in person and will be provided in accordance with the Ohio Public Records Act.

A public records request form is located here to assist requesters with the necessary information to identify the records sought.

Questions regarding the City’s public records policy should be directed to Jennifer Mason, Clerk of Council. The public records policy and retention schedule are available on the City’s website or for inspection in person by contacting Jennifer Mason at Village Hall, 99 W. Main Street, New Albany or (614) 939-2244.
