Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) Inspection of Public Records Procedures:
The Freedom of Information Act, 096-0542, is the Illinois Statute governing the inspection of public records. This Act provides for public inspection of records in the possession of the Village of Manteno. Exemptions also are provided to insure the confidentiality of certain records. The Act went into effect on Jan. 1, 2010.
To Make a FOIA Request:
To request copies of records or to personally inspect records, information must be requested in written form. A Freedom of Information Act Request Form is available for your convenience. Use of this form is recommended but not required.
The Village will respond within five business days after the request is received (starting with the first business day after a request is received). In cases where additional time is necessary, a letter will be sent within the five business day period. Any written request faxed or emailed to the Village after business hours (normal business hours are considered to be 8:00 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Mondays through Fridays, holidays excepted) will be considered received on the next business day.
Completed requests should be delivered to the FOIA Officer via mail, fax or in-person. Forms also can be electronically submitted via email to: firstname.lastname@example.org
