Are There Any Public Records That I May Not Inspect or Copy?

There are numerous exceptions to the public records laws which allow a public body to refuse to disclose public records. Per Oregon Revised Statutes 192.311 to 192.479, public bodies are required to make available for inspection and copying, subject to any applicable exemptions (legal review, proprietary information or personal identifying information), only those records that exist in our custody at the time of the request.  If the County denies your request to review the public record(s), a written explanation of the reason for denial will be forwarded to you by the custodian within a reasonable amount of time.
