What is a public record?

A public record is any writing containing information relating to the conduct of the public’s business, prepared, owned, used or retained by a public body regardless of physical form or characteristics. You have the right to inspect any non-exempt public record, by Oregon law. See the Public Records Access Policy for more details. See Oregon Revised Statute Chapter sections 192.501 and 192.502 for a complete list of exemptions.
