Flagg Township complies with the standards set by the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA).  It is the policy of Flagg Township to fill all requests for public documents in a timely manner.

In order to assist you and have a record of your request, we ask that all requesters complete a FOIA Request Form. Requests can be made by letter, telephone, fax, or email.  

By law, the maximum time to produce the information for routine requests is five business days; commercial requests are 21 business days.  In rare cases, you will be notified, in writing, if an extension is needed.  

Original documents may be viewed. If a copy request is over 50 pages, copies are fifteen cents a page.

Note: when you submit a FOIA request, your information becomes a public record.
