  • Not all information requested may still be available. Information is destroyed in accordance with established State Retention Laws
  • Some request will require longer to process than others
  • The Production of some information could incur a charge. Please see the City’s policy  pertaining to Public Records Requests.

  • We can not create a new document to satisfy a record request.
  • Florida has a very broad public records law. Most written communications to or from the City of Fort Walton Beach officials / employees are public records available to the public and media upon request. Your e-mail address and communications may therefore be subject to public disclosure.
