§ 12.03  REQUEST TO INSPECT OR COPY PUBLIC RECORD; TIME FOR RESPONSE.
   (A)   Any person may inspect and copy the public records of the city during regular business hours, unless such records are otherwise exempted from disclosure as provided herein (IC 5-14-3-4, as amended) or other applicable state or federal law. This section is subject to IC 5-14-3-5, as amended, relating to information that must be disclosed relating to an individual's arrest.
   (B)   A request for inspection or copying must:
      (1)   Identify with reasonable particularity the record being requested; and
      (2)   Be in writing on the form attached to Ord. 30-C-07, as Exhibit A.
   (C)   The city must reply (approval or denial of request) to hand delivered written requests within 24 business hours. The city must reply to written requests received by mail or facsimile within seven calendar days. Although the city must provide a reply within the proscribed time period, this does not require the city to actually produce the record(s) requested within that proscribed time period, but the reply must be made within a reasonable time following the request.
   (D)   If a request will be granted, the city shall either provide the requested copies or allow copies to be made on the city's equipment or on the requester's own equipment.
