Requests for public records are fulfilled under the guidelines of the Illinois Freedom of Information Act (5 ILCS 140).
The Village Clerk, Patricia Harris, is the appointed Freedom of Information Act Officer (FOIA) for the Village of Phoenix. You may contact the FOIA Officer by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org or visiting the Village Hall.
How to Request a F.O.I.A
All requests must be submitted in writing to the attention of the Freedom of Information Act Officer. Applicants may use the Village of Phoenix suggested FOIA Request Form, available below and at the Phoenix Village Hall, or submit their own written request for records. Applicants choosing not to use the suggested form must provide their full name, current address, phone number, a detailed account of the documents they are requesting, and whether or not they are requesting the records/documents for commercial use.
Written requests may be submitted in person at the Village Clerk’s Office, located at the Phoenix Village Hall; mailed to the attention of the Freedom of Information Act Officer; emailed to email@example.com.
Requestors will be contacted within the time allotted by law with a response to their request. At that time, the requestor will be told of any fees associated with their request or possible delays.
