Public Records Requests


The California Public Records Act (CPRA) provides for the fundamental right of the public to access public records. Requests for public records should be submitted to the Office of the Town Clerk.

Public Records can be requested in writing, via postal mail, e-mail, fax, or through the online Request Tracker. Requests may also be made orally on the phone or in person.  However, to assist with making a focused request for identifiable records, it is best to put your request in writing.

Fees and Charges for Duplicating


The Town does not charge for the time and costs incurred in searching for, locating, or collecting records. However, the Town charges for actual costs of duplicating paper records and any postage.

The Town of Los Gatos is not the keeper of Birth Certificates, Marriage Certificates, Death Certificates, or Divorce Decrees.  Please contact the Santa Clara County Clerk-Recorder's office at www.clerkrecorder.org or call (408) 299-5688.
