Public Disclosure Requests can be initiated by printing and completing the Lewis County Request to Inspect or Copy Public Record Form:
After completing the form, it can be submitted to the appropriate department for fulfillment. A directory of county departments and their addresses can be found here.
Lewis County utilizes a web-based Records Center, below, for tracking and delivery of records requests. Click "View My Requests" to login.
Many requests for inspection or copying of public records can be completed by the close of the next business day following the day the request is made. If your request is not complicated and the record readily available, it may be processed at the time it is received. In some circumstances the processing of your request or an official response to your request may take up to five (5) business days. The department cannot respond to your request to inspect or copy a record unless this form and declaration of non-commercial use is completed. If you have questions, please contact the appropriate department.
NOTE: The Public Disclosure Act is for the purpose of providing existing documentation or records, not for the purpose of gathering, sorting and/or creating new documentation. General questions specific to certain divisions/sections should be directed to appropriate personnel.
