FOIA (Freedom of Information Act) -
The Michigan Freedom of Information Act allows a person to request a record from a public body. A "Public record" means a writing prepared, owned, used, in the possession of, or retained by a public body in the performance of an official function, from the time it is created. Public record does not include computer software. Public record does not include requiring the public body to create a new document to answer the request. FOIA is not a question/answer format, it is a request for an existing document/record. If you have questions, you can often get answers by calling the office, doing some online research or contacting your local library (see article below).
