City Launches New Online Platform for Open Records Requests

Open Records

The City of Elgin is making public record requests more easily accessible by launching the software JustFOIA this week. JustFOIA is a FOIA (Freedom Of Information Act) request software solution designed to help organizations better streamline, manage, and track public records. With the launch of JustFOIA, requestors of public information will now have the option of submitting Open Records Requests through an easy-to-use online form. While other methods for submitting requests are still available, Elgin is excited to be able to offer a more convenient option. 

If you would like to submit an online request, the form is available here: and is also available on the City Secretary’s and Police Department’s pages under "Submit" or "View Public Information Requests".  

Go here for the City Secretary’s page or here for the Police Department’s page 

For questions or more information, please contact the City Secretary at or at 512-229-3222.
