The Village of Forrest falls under the Illinois Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) provisions. Persons wishing to view or obtain copies of Village records should submit a written request to the Village Clerk's Office by mail, fax, or email. The Village has five working days to provide the records; however, certain records are exempt from disclosure under the Freedom of Information Act, in which the requestor will explain in the denial.
Fees for Records
If feasible, copies of records will be provided in the format specified by the requestor. Charges for copies of records will be imposed per the following:
Fees applicable to copies furnished in a paper format shall not apply to those records when furnished in an electronic format, except for a voluminous request. For a voluminous request where records are to be provided in an electronic record format (but not PDF), $20 up to 2 MB, $40 up to 4MB, and $100 over 4MB; if the records are in PDF format, $20 up to 80 MB; $40 up to 160 MB; and $100 for more than 160 MB of data. If the responsive electronic records are in both a portable document format and not in a portable document format, the public body may separate the fees and charge the requester under both fee scales.
- The first 50 black-and-white, letter-size, and/or legal-size pages will be copied and provided for free.
