Freedom of Information Act

Michigan’s Freedom of Information Act (Public Act 442 of 1976) guarantees citizens the right of access to most public documents. FOIA regulates and sets requirements for the disclosure of public records by all public bodies in the State, including the City of Ishpeming.

It is the public policy of this state that all persons (except those persons incarcerated in state or local correctional facilities) are entitled to full and complete information regarding the affairs of government and the official acts of those who represent them as public officials  and public employees.

To remain consistent with the Michigan Freedom of Information Act (FOIA), the following documents include the Written Public Summary of the City’s FOIA Procedures relevant to the general public, the request for public records, an appeal form for the denial of records, and an appeal form for an excess fee.


The Ishpeming City Council adopted its current FOIA Policy #404 on June 3, 2015.
