City Council
Public Records

The Ohio Public Records Act details how to request public records, but also excludes certain public records from disclosure. Any person may request to inspect or obtain copies of public records from the City of Bellbrook by making a public records request to the City. Public records requests for records held by the City of Bellbrook Police Department and the City of Bellbrook Fire Department should be directed to these entities.

The Ohio Public Records Act does not require the City of Bellbrook to create new information, compile data, do legal research, provide records in a format other than the existing format of the records, or answer questions. The time it takes to respond to a public records request will depend on the complexity of the request, the volume of responsive documents, and other factors. The City will respond to a public records request with either the requested public records or some type of other communication promptly or as soon as possible.

There is also a large amount of information and public records available on our website at and readily available to the public without a public records request.
