Freedom of Information Act (FOIA)

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 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. 

Upon receipt of your FOIA request, City staff will provide written acknowledgement within four (4) business days and begin working on compiling documentation. Once your request has been completed, you will be notified as to when the documents will be available. 

The City of Groton has no legal obligation to, and will not perform analytical work, studies, investigations, calculations, or program reviews, or create any document in response to a FOIA Request.
