The Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) is a group of laws requiring permission to be given access to public records.
If you are seeking information about your own property or accounts, contact the appropriate department directly. A copy fee may apply, but no FOIA request is necessary.
If you are seeking public information about the operation of one specific City of Holland department, submit a written request in any of these ways.
- Fill out a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request form (link below)
- Email that includes "FOIA Request" in the subject line to HCCITYFOIA @cityofholland.com
- Letter that states you are asking for documents through the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA)
Information exempt from FOIA requests includes: Information deemed private; trade secrets; advisory communications with government agencies; attorney-client communications; medical counseling and psychological facts or appraisals; records of campaign committees; and some law enforcement records.
