Public Records Request
The Town of Windsor has a Public Records Portal (NextRequest) that allows anyone to submit a records request, correspond with Town staff, and track requests online. The portal also allows users to search for published public records requests and documents.

Information about California Public Records Act (CPRA) Submissions
The Town is subject to California laws relating to public records. All information contained in a CPRA request, including a requestor's information, is considered public record, and may be subject to public inspection, pursuant to Government Code section 7920.530.
CPRA requests may be made anonymously; however, the Town will not be able to provide updates or seek clarification on anonymous CPRA requests. It will be the requestor's responsibility to check the portal for records that are posted publicly on the portal in response to their request.
Pursuant to Government Code Section 7920.530, a public record is defined as “any writing containing information relating to the conduct of the public's business prepared, owned, used, or retained by any state or local agency regardless of physical form or characteristics.”
Public records requests may be used to obtain "agency records," which include a wide variety of documents and other materials (including print, photographic, and electronic formats) that were created or obtained by the agency and are, at the time the request is filed, in the agency's possession and control. The CPRA excludes certain categories of records from disclosure.
