Freedom of Access Information Requests

Knox County recognizes the rights of the public to certain information, which is guaranteed under Maine's Freedom of Access Law as outlined in 1 M.R.S. Chapter 13. The law provides that public proceedings and public records are to be open to the public.

The Knox County Commission adopted this comprehensive public records policy on May 10, 2016. This policy will assure that public records within the custody and control of the County are open and available to the public; that requests to inspect and copy records are evaluated promptly and handled consistent with the Maine Freedom of Access Law and that persons requesting to inspect and copy public records in the custody and control of the County know the procedures and guidelines that apply to those requests. The County Administrator serves as the designated public access officer and is responsible for ensuring that public record requests are acknowledged within a reasonable amount of time and that a good faith estimate of when the response to the request will be complete is provided.

For the full policy and further information, please see the PDF of the Policy below. The form you will need to submit to request access to County information is also below.

To make a request, please fill out the top portion of the form below, being as specific as you can in your request, and then either email the PDF to as an attachment or mail a hard copy to: Knox County Administrative Office, 62 Union Street, Rockland, ME 04841.
