The Town of Yountville’s (“Town”) website contains a vast amount of information that can be easily located by Department, Document Central or by using the search engine on the website. If you are unable to locate the information you are looking for on our website, please take a moment to review our process below for requesting public records. 

The Town strives to provide an efficient process to comply with requests for access to or copies of public records and it is the Town’s practice to facilitate a timely response to all requests within reasonable limitations that may be imposed by reduced staffing or workload.

Public Records Act Request Forms must be submitted to the Town Clerk by one of the following methods: in person or by mail to Yountville Town Hall, 6550 Yount Street, Yountville, CA 94599; by email to mdahme@yville.com, or by facsimile at (707) 944-9619.  A Public Records Act Request Form is provided below and requests will be processed in the order they are received.

If you need assistance in making a focused and effective request that reasonably describes identifiable records, please let us know and we will be glad to assist you.

Please be advised there is a charge for the direct cost of duplication of $.30 per page. The Town must receive payment before any copies are made. If the documents requested exceed 50 pages, a deposit may be requested. If your request is to review records (rather than receive copies), once the records are gathered and ready for your review, the Town will contact you to schedule an appointment.

Please be advised that not all records in the Town’s possession are subject to disclosure. Under the California Government Code, certain records are specifically exempt from disclosure. In addition, other records are generally exempt for disclosure if the public interest served by not making the records public clearly outweighs the public interest served by disclosure of the records. (GC § 6255).
