What is a public record?
A public record is any writing that contains information relating to the conduct of the public's business, including but not limited to court records, mortgages, and deed records, prepared, owned, used or retained by a public body regardless of physical form or characteristics.
Writing means handwriting, typewriting, printing, photographing, and every means of recording, including letters, words, pictures, sounds, or symbols, or combination thereof, and all papers, maps, files, facsimiles, or electronic recordings.
We aren't required to collect information or organize data to create a record that fulfills your request.

We don't keep property tax statements.
Oregon laws require redacting some information contained in our records. For more information on what information can't be released, read the statutory list of exemptions.
