FOIA Contacts

Important Items to Note –

The Freedom of Information Act is for the request of EXISTING documents held in Village of Morton files.  It does not require the Village to create a document or report, nor does it require us to respond with an answer to a question.

To successfully obtain the document you need, please be as specific as possible. State what you need at the bottom of the form below and provide as much descriptive information as available.  If there is a report name or number please include that. Provide any specific information you may have, such as date or time of incident on a police report, which will narrow the scope of our search and make it more likely you will receive the information you need.
