To Request Data
Complete and return the Data Request Form to City Hall. Please be as specific as possible (names, dates, subject, addresses, PID numbers etc.) in making your request so we understand exactly what information you are looking for. Please be aware that requests may take up to 10 business days to fill. Additional time may be needed for large requests.
For more information, contact the Terri Haarstad, City Clerk at 651-638-2045.
Public documents maintained by the City of New Brighton can be viewed free of charge at New Brighton City Hall during regular office hours. Please make an appointment by calling 651-638-2100.

In general, to look at data or request copies of data that the City keeps, your request must be in writing, and submitted by mail, in person or by email. If, however, the information requested is readily available, staff may provide the information without a written request.
The City cannot require you to identify yourself or explain the reason for your data request; however, depending on how you want us to process your request, we may need some information about you. Please keep in mind that if we do not understand your request and have no way to contact you, we will not be able to process your request.
Written requests should be directed to: City Clerk, Terri Haarstad, (651) 638-2100.
Upon receiving your written request, we will work to process it as quickly as possible. If we do not have the data requested, or the data is not public, we will notify you in writing (assuming you have supplied contact information) as soon as reasonably possible and state which specific law classifies the data as non-public. If you do not understand some of the data (technical terminology, abbreviations or acronyms), we will provide an explanation if you ask.
The Data Practices Act does not require us to answer questions that are not requests for data.
Summary data are statistical records or reports that are prepared by removing all identifiers from private or confidential data on individuals. The City will prepare summary data if requested in writing. You will be required to pay the staff costs for creating the summary data.
