Records Request Process 
How To Request A Public Record
  • Requester submits completed Public Record Request to Lane County Animal Services (LCAS).
  • LCAS will respond to the requester acknowledging the request and include one of the following statements:
  1. The Department does not possess or is not the custodian of the public record.
  2. The records requested are exempt from disclosure as per ORS 192.410 to 192.505.
  3. The Department is uncertain whether it possesses the public record but will search for the record and will promptly notify requester of the records' availability.
  4. State or Federal law prohibits Lane County from acknowledging whether the record exists or that acknowledging whether the record exists would result in the loss of federal benefits or other sanctions.
  5. The Department is the custodian of at least some of the requested public records, an estimate of the time the department requires before the public records may be inspected or copies of the records will be provided and an estimate of the fees that the requester must pay as a condition of receiving the public records.
  6. The Department is the custodian of at least some of the requested public records and that an estimate of the time and fees for disclosure of the requested public record and that an estimate of the time and fees for disclosure of the public records will be provided by the Department within a reasonable time.
  • If the estimated cost of locating, assembling, copying and reviewing the requested documents is less than $25.00, the department may proceed with such work.  The requester must arrange payment of the balance due prior to receipt of the requested documents.
  • If the estimated cost exceeds $25.00, Lane County must provide an estimate to the requester and stop any work on the request until payment is received in the estimated amount.  If the requester chooses to pay the estimated amount, work will be done in a reasonable amount of time.  If the time and resources spent on the request are less than the paid amount, a refund will be provided.  If the time and resources spent on the request exceed the estimated amount, the documents will be provided upon receipt of balance due.
  • Lane County shall locate and assemble the record(s) requested, eliminating any records which are exempt from disclosure (ORS 192.410 to 192.505).  Lane County shall charge a reasonable fee for the location, assemblage, copying, and review of the records as allowed under ORS 192.440.
