Brookhaven launches new web portal for open records requests

Brookhaven, GA, May 1, 2017 – The public now has an easier way to request open records from Brookhaven. The Brookhaven City Clerk’s office has launched a “JustFOIA” portal, allowing users to fill out an automated form online here.

Citizens requesting open records pertaining to police matters will also be able to make their requests through JustFOIA at this link.

“Members of the public can now request open records at their convenience with a computer, smart phone, or tablet, 24 hours a day, seven days a week,” said Brookhaven City Clerk Susan Hiott.

For the past several months, the clerk’s office has been working diligently to improve Brookhaven’s transparency and ease of accessibility in obtaining government records. Previously, the city clerk and staff were handling the volume on a case-by-case basis.

The new web portal and software will track the requests as they are being worked on, and users will receive an email confirmation and notifications as progress is being made, and will be able to check the status of requests online.

While the usual fees for open records will still apply, there will be no additional fee for the online service.

JustFOIA is part of Municode, the company that hosts the City of Brookhaven’s ordinances online.
