Data Practices

The Government Data Practices Act (Minnesota Statutes, Chapter 13) presumes that all government data are public unless a state or federal law says the data are not public.  Government data is a term that means all recorded information a government entity has, including paper, e-mail, DVDs, photographs, etc.

The Government Data Practices Act requires the City to keep all government data in a way that makes it easy for you, as a member of the public, to access. You have the right to look at public data that we keep free of charge. You also have the right to get copies, however, the City can charge a fee for data.  If charges apply, you have the right to look at the data, for free, before deciding to request a copy.
