FOIA Request Process

TOWN OF FAIRFIELD FREEDOM OF INFORMATION (FOIA) POLICY - The Town of Fairfield is committed to the principle that access to public records and meetings of public agencies is critical to good government. The Connecticut Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) gives you the right to request and obtain records from public agencies within certain limitations. You may request records that are not already available on the internet through the Town of Fairfield website. The Town has no obligation to perform analytical work, studies, investigations, calculations, program reviews or create any special/customized document/materials or retrieval in response to a FOIA request. Only public documents/records that currently exist are subject to the law. There is an established retention schedule for all Town Records per the Connecticut State Library. Records that have exceeded the required retention may no longer be available.

If you are interested in submitting a TOWN-related FOIA request, please review the policy below and submit your request online.
