FOIA-Guidelines/Forms
   
 


It is the policy of the South County Sewer and Water Authority (“Authority”) that all persons, except those who are serving a sentence of imprisonment, consistent with the Michigan Freedom of Information Act (FOIA), are entitled to full and complete information regarding the affairs of government and the official acts of those who represent them as public officials and employees. 
The people shall be informed so that they fully participate in the democratic process. 

The Authority’s policy with respect to FOIA requests is to comply with State law in all respects and to respond to FOIA requests in a consistent, fair, and even-handed manner regardless of who makes such a request.   The Authority acknowledges that it has a legal obligation to disclose all nonexempt public records in its possession pursuant to a FOIA request.

The Authority acknowledges that sometimes it is necessary to invoke the exemptions identified under FOIA in order to ensure the effective operation of government and to protect the privacy of individuals. 

The Authority will protect the public’s interest in disclosure, while balancing the requirement to withhold or redact portions of certain records.   The Authority’s policy is to disclose public records consistent with and in compliance with State law.
