Request Public Records
The City Attorney's office is the custodian of all city records. Requests for public records are governed by the New Mexico Inspection of Public Records Act Section 14-2.1 NMSA 1978, and amended by the city's.
The New Mexico Inspection of Public Records Act is intended to provide the public with access to information about governmental affairs. The law requires public access to the vast majority of public records with a few exceptions. Each state agency and local governmental entities have designated a records custodian to whom requests to inspect records should be addressed.
