The Oklahoma Open Records Act gives you the right to access government records. All government information is presumed to be available to the public, with certain exceptions.
Governmental bodies shall release requested information as promptly as possible, unless the information is exempt from disclosure under the Open Records Act. Tulsa County uses the rates established by the Office of the Attorney General to determine charges for copies of public records. At the discretion of the staff member responding to a request, fees may be waived when there are a minimal number of responsive documents.
Requests Exceeding $100
Where estimated costs exceed $100, the requestor will be required to make a deposit before any records are copied. Typically, the deposit will be 10% of the estimated cost of reproducing the requested records.
