Public Records Policy
It is the policy of Lincoln County to respond in an orderly, consistent and reasonable manner in accordance with the Oregon Public Records Law to requests to inspect or receive copies of public records maintained by Lincoln County. Many public record requests are made orally and are simultaneously satisfied in the normal course of business.
This procedure is not intended to replace established departmental procedures of this kind. Other records are of a specialized nature and require specific written requests or releases before records can be released. Check with the specific department or office to see if there are required written request or release forms. Otherwise you may use this general form. Each written request will receive a written response.
