Welcome to the San Mateo Public Records Request Center

The California Public Records Act (Government Code Section 6253(c)) requires the City to respond to a request for public records within ten (10) calendar days.

The City will determine whether the request, in whole or in part, seeks copies of disclosable records and will promptly notify the requestor of its determination. In unusual circumstances, it may be necessary to request a 14-day extension to provide a determination.
