Freedom Of Information Act (FOIA)

The Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) provides the public with the right to access government documents and records.  The law provides that an individual may ask a public body for a copy of its records on a specific subject and that the public body must provide those records, unless there is an exemption in the statute that protects those records from disclosure, such as when the record contains an individual’s private information.

FOIA requests may be submitted in writing via email to:, mailed to the Village or in person at the Village Hall located at 87 N Lake Ave, Third Lake, IL 60030.  A FOIA request form is available for your convenience, but not necessary.
