Missouri Sunshine Law Basics

  • Each request for access to a public record be responded to no later than the end of the third business day following the date the request is received by the City Clerk. (RSMo 610.023.3)
  • A fee may be charged for research time not to exceed the average hourly rate of pay for clerical staff. There also may be a charge of up to 10 cents per page for standard copies and the actual cost of the copy for larger or oversized documents. (RSMo 610.026.1)
  • The Missouri Sunshine Law does not require that an open records request be submitted in a specific format. However, we encourage making requests in writing (letter, email, etc.) so we can maintain a record of what was requested, and when. (RSMo 610.023.3)
