The City Clerk’s Office handles Public Records Requests in compliance with California’s Public Records Act. Public records are open to inspection during regular City office hours, except for City holidays. While there are charges for the duplication of records (photocopies, CDs and DVDs) there is no charge to inspect or view records. Whenever possible the City will provide the records electronically when requested.
Although persons in need of records are not required to fill out a Public Records Request Form, completion of the form makes the process more efficient. If you wish to complete a Public Records Request Form, please download the form and return it to the City Clerk’s Office at 34009 Alvarado-Niles Road, Union City, CA 94587. You may also submit a request by fax at (510) 475-7318 or by email.
