Freedom of Information (FOIA) requests
The Connecticut Freedom of Information Act gives you the right to obtain records and attend meetings of all public agencies with certain exceptions.
All FOIA requests must be done in writing. You may email the request to FOI@cityofgroton-ct.gov or drop the request off in person in the Municipal Building at the City Clerk's office. Please be detailed so that we have a clear and complete understanding of the request.
Requesters should be aware that the City receives many requests for information under FOIA, and that City personnel require time to gather and review responsive records. The City works to provide complete responses, but doing so takes time, and patience is requested and appreciated, as these requests are fulfilled.
