To Whom It May Concern:

Pursuant to Tennessee's Public Records Act, I hereby request the following records:

The requested documents will be made available to the general public, and this request is not being made for commercial purposes.

In the event that there are fees, I would be grateful if you would inform me of the total charges in advance of fulfilling my request. I would prefer the request filled electronically, by e-mail attachment if available or CD-ROM if not.

The Tennessee Public Records Act provides that any citizen of Tennessee has the right to personally inspect a public record unless there is a state law that restricts or prohibits inspection. If you are a TN. citizen, with proper identification, you will need to come by our office for the inspection. It is best to schedule your visit, to confirm the record exist, that it can be legally inspected, and to allow prompt service upon arrival.
