If you would like to submit a FOIA request, please carefully read the information below. Illinois law requires public bodies to respond to or deny FOIA requests within five working days. The time for response can be extended for an additional five working days, as allowed under the law.
Methods to Request Information and Public Records
Please complete the FOIA Request Form (PDF) and mail, fax, email, or hand-deliver directly to SMC. The Requestor is not required to fill out the form as long their request is in writing, and can be submitted via e-mail.
Please be specific in the nature of your request in order for a FOIA officer to process your request more efficiently. (Illinois law does not require you to submit on a standard form, but the request should be specific and if possible, in writing).
