Public Records


As you are aware, COVID-19 is a global pandemic that has required many government facilities to follow the President and State officials’ mandate to limit the gathering of individuals in public spaces. Consistent with dealing with and adapting to this pandemic, some City of Jacksonville Beach public buildings are closed to the public, and some City employees are complying with Federal and State authority mandates and recommendations to work from home, maintain safe distances from other people, and to avoid coming to work if they show certain symptoms. Compliance with a Public Records request within a “reasonable time” has become more complicated.  Completing the response requires more time than would normally be needed.  We will use our best efforts to research and gather the documents you requested, if such records exist, and respond as reasonably and timely as possible. Please be patient in our response time and realize that any delay in response is due to our compliance with Federal and State directives and mandates, and significantly scaled-back staff of certain City departments.


Official City Records

The City Clerk is the custodian of the official city records. Pursuant to State Statutes, municipal records are open to the public and may be purchased from the office of the City Clerk at a cost as established by Chapter 119 of the Florida Statutes.

Chapter 119 also provides for an additional charge if the nature or volume of the records requested requires extensive research or assistance by the City Clerk’s staff.

Requesting a Record

While we prefer to receive requests for copies of public records in writing, all requests will be filled regardless of how they are received.
