Freedom of Information (FOIA)

What is FOIA?

Since 1967, the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) has provided the public the right to request access to records from any federal agency. It is often described as the law that keeps citizens in the know about their government.  Federal agencies are required to disclose any information requested under the FOIA unless it falls under one of nine exemptions which protect interests such as personal privacy, national security, and law enforcement.

As of July 2015 the Village of Kent City has updated all Freedom of Information procedures to meet the legal requirements of the federal government.

Request forms for Freedom of Information can be obtained at the Village Office or online:  Before making a FOIA request, make sure you read through the “Summary of Freedom of Information Act Procedures and Guidelines”.

Winter Reminders:

Private snow contractors must clear all snow from the public streets and sidewalks. Residents are prohibited from blowing or shoveling snow into the streets or leave on the sidewalks. As a courtesy the village removes snow from the sidewalks and does the main school route first. However, it is the property owner’s responsibility to keep the sidewalk clear of snow & ice. Please be considerate of the DPW employees when they are removing snow. Mail Boxes Please check your mailbox post to be sure it is stable before the winter season is upon us and that the box is securely on the post. Mailboxes and / or supports that are damaged as a result from snowplowing are not subject to replacement by the Village.
