The Michigan Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) intends that all persons shall be informed about government affairs and official acts so that they may fully participate in the democratic process.
Under the provisions of FOIA and based on the principle of openness in government, Eaton County and its departments will make information and records described as 'public records' available to all persons entitled to full and complete information to the greatest extent possible. Eaton County may, however, withhold public records as permitted by certain exemptions and exclusions in the FOIA statute. Eaton County FOIA Specialist may be able to help you identify the public records that contain the information you are seeking. You can contact the FOIA Specialist directly at (517) 543-2287.
