Open Public Records

Records maintained by the City of Leavenworth may be public records that are open for inspection and/or copying by the public. The Kansas Open Records Act provides for some records to be kept private. These exceptions include personnel information of public employees, medical treatment records, items protected by attorney-client privilege or the rules of evidence, certain records containing personal information for Census purposes, notes and preliminary drafts, criminal investigation records, and several other specific records. For a complete listing of exemptions, see K.S.A. 45-221. 
 
The Kansas Open Records Act authorizes the City to charge fees for providing access to or furnishing copies of the public record. The fee is requested in advance and includes the cost of staff time and cost of reproducing the record.
