Any individual person, group, association, corporation, firm, partnership or organization has the right to file a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request to any state or local public body, including any city, township, or county office. If one wishes to submit a FOIA request, one can do so in person at the Township office, or over the phone, during regular office hours. A written request can also be submitted to the Township via fax, email, or by traditional mail.

Requested information can also be provided electronically, on a compact disc, or on a USB drive.
