- Transparency in Government
- Public Records
The Cosumnes Community Services District (District) understands and supports the public’s right to access the public records created and maintained by the District in the course of their normal business. It is the goal of the District to provide service in a transparent manner, which includes timely access to requested records in accordance with the California Public Records Act (PRA), Government Code Sections 6250 to 6270.
California law designates that the majority of the District’s records be available for public disclosure. These laws also stipulate certain types of records that are exempt from public disclosure, such as personnel records, records related to current litigation or current real estate negotiations, and such.
Public Records Request Process

- Public Records Requests may be requested online by completing the Public Records Request Form.
Public Access to Records

Fees and Delivery
There is no cost to email records. The cost of copying records is charged to the requestor, $0.10 per page for 8.5 x 11. If mailed, postage costs are also paid by the requestor.
The Public Records Act covers only records that already exist. It does not require creation of documents, lists or compilations.
Expected Time Frame
Under the Public Records Act Request the District has ten days in which to respond in writing to a request. In extraordinary cases, such as when a request requires review of lots of documents or requires retrieval of documents from other locations, the District may extend this time to respond to you in writing by up to 14 days. In this written response, the District will let the requestor know if records responsive to the request exist, whether any exemptions may apply, and when to expect to review or receive copies of the responsive records.
