Rich Township is committed to providing open and honest government. In that effort, the Township has created the "Transparency Center," to allow easy access to the most commonly requested documents. While the Freedom of Information extends beyond what is available online, the Township makes all public records available for inspection.
Freedom of Information Act (FOIA)
The Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) allows individuals to request access to public records, except to the extent records are claimed as exempt from disclosure under one or more exemptions of the FOIA. The Township's FOIA Officer responds to all requests for access to eligible public records.
There is no copying fee for the first 50 black and white standard-sized copies. The fee for additional copies is 15¢ per page. Actual cost will be charged for copies of documents not of standard size, and for the recording medium (e.g., compact disk, tape, DVD), when applicable. The Township shall charge $1 for certifying a record.
How to Submit FOIA Request
FOIA requests should include the following:
- requester's name
- nature of the request.
Submit either via email and mail:
