Copying of Records (PDF)

Policy & Procedure for Examination or Copying of Records. 

It is the policy of the City of Indianola Iowa to meet all reasonable requests for information and documents within the constraints of Iowa Code Chapter 22. This policy should be read in harmony with those provisions of Iowa Code Chapter 22 in effect at the time of the request.

The City of Indianola recognizes the right of the public to access public records maintained by the City in accordance with state law. When the City responds to requests to inspect or copy records, costs are incurred by the City. This policy is adopted to balance these competing interests, to establish an orderly and consistent procedure for responding to public records requests and to support the adoption of a fee schedule designed to reimburse the City for the actual costs incurred in responding to public records requests.
