Public Records Requests

Public Records Requests are supervised by the City Clerk's Office yet the process is decentralized. Therefore, you are encouraged to make your request with the department that maintains the respective record. If your request involves multiple departments, please contact the City Clerk's Office for coordination at (954) 457-1340.
To make a request, please do one of the following: 

•To submit and track a Public Records Request please use the MyHB App.
E-mail or mail your request to the City Clerk's Office
•Visit the City Clerk's Office
•Call the Clerk's Office at (954) 457-1340 
To better serve you, please include a detailed description of what you are asking for. 
(Name, Address, and other contact information are optional.)

When the request has been fulfilled, you will be contacted.  
Under Florida law, e-mail addresses are public records. If you do not want your e-mail address released in response to a public records request, do not send electronic mail to this entity. Instead, contact the city by phone or in writing.
