How do I file an Open Public Records Act (OPRA) request form?

The Municipal Clerk receives all requests under the Open Public Records Act (OPRA). OPRA applies to requests for records, not requests for isolated facts.

In order to be considered a valid request under OPRA, the request must identify the specific record(s) desired and the request must be submitted to the records custodian of the public agency that maintains the record.

A New Jersey Appeals Court recently ruled that those requesting records do not need to use the agency's records request form but any request must include all required information. A printable copy of the OPRA request form (PDF) is available in the Forms section under Clerk / Registrar and can be mailed, emailed, or faxed to the Clerk's Office.

OPRA requests are addressed within seven business days unless extended with the consent of the requestor.
