Public Records Request

Public Records Request

Public Records Requests may be submitted electronically to the Burbank City Clerk's Office. Please email your Public Records Request Form to [email protected]

California Government Code Section 7922.535 states that each agency, upon request for a copy of record, shall, within 10 days from receipt of the request, determine whether the request, in whole or in part, seeks copies of disclosable public records in the possession of the agency and shall promptly notify the person making the request of the determination and the reasons therefore. In unusual circumstances, the time limit prescribed in this section may be extended, by written notice by the head of the agency, or his or her designee, to the person making the request, setting forth the reasons for the extension and the date on which a determination is expected to be dispatched. No notice shall specify a date that would result in an extension for more than 14 days. 

Per Government Code section 7922.000, certain records of a personal nature which may be part of an application shall not be disclosed where the City has determined that the public interest in disclosure is outweighed by the public interest in nondisclosure.

Please Note

The City DOES NOT provide the following types of records:

  • Birth, Death & Marriage Records
  • Fictitious Business Name Filings
  • Marriage Ceremonies
  • Marriage Licenses
  • Notary Oaths
  • Real Estate Transactions

For such requests, please contact the Los Angeles County Registrar/Recorder’s offices.
