In accordance with the Louisiana Public Records law, La. Rev. Stat. 44:1, et seq., St. John the Baptist strives to promptly release public records upon request. Because staff must research and retrieve the specified records, sometimes with third party assistance, some record requests require additional time. If at all possible, the requested records will be provided as quickly as possible or a notification of the status of the request will be provided within a 3 day period.
Fees: A cost estimate and a timeframe for delivery of the requested records will be provided within 2 days. Copies will not be made until written confirmation of the order is received and all applicable fees are paid in full. If a written confirmation or payment is not received within 10 business days after notification of the estimated fees, the requestor may be required to initiate a new request.
The requestor also has the option of reviewing records onsite at an agreed upon time and location in the presence of a parish employee or designee.
Additional service fees may apply depending on the scope of the request.
All fees must be paid prior to the release of the records.
