Information

What is FOIA?

FOIA is the Illinois Freedom of Information Act. Under the Illinois Freedom of Information Act (5 ILCS 140/1 et. seq.), records in possession of public agencies may be accessed by the public upon written request.

How can I submit a FOIA request?

The Chillicothe Park District’s Freedom of Information Act request form can be found here.  Written requests not using the provided form should state that information is being sought under the Freedom of Information Act. Provide a brief description of the public records requested, being as specific as possible. While responses can be provided via e-mail, please provide a mailing address.

What happens after I submit a request?

The Illinois Freedom of Information Act requires agencies to respond within five business days of receipt of a request. A five-day extension is allowed with written notification to the requester.

What are the costs for duplication?

  • Electronic copy from electronic source – Free
  • Paper copy from paper or electronic source – $0.25 per page
  • Checks are to be made payable to: “Chillicothe Park District”

Is there a process to appeal the FOIA officer’s decisions?

In the event that part or all of a request is denied, requesters may appeal the denial to the President of the Park District. A written notice of appeal should be sent to:
