The City of Ankeny acknowledges the right of the public to access public records maintained by the City in accordance with Iowa Code Chapter 22. The City takes this public responsibility seriously and is committed to open government and makes every attempt to respond to requests in a timely manner.

Pursuant to Iowa Code Chapter 22, certain records maintained by the City are not public records and may be exempt from public disclosure. When the City responds to requests to inspect or copy records, costs are incurred by the City. The Public Records Policy was adopted by the City Council in February, 2007 to establish an orderly and consistent procedure for responding to public records requests and to support the establishment of a fee schedule designed to reimburse the City for actual costs incurred in responding to public records requests.
