Open Public Records Act Request

The New Jersey Open Public Records Act (OPRA) established two items important to people seeking local, county or state government information. First, it provided a definition of what is considered a public government record. Second, it established a process with timeframes for making formal requests for government records. The following information below is provided for people seeking to make an OPRA request for Borough of South River governmental records.

Where do I send requests for public records?

Open Public Records Act (OPRA) designates the Clerk as the official custodian of local government records. However, it is possible for a municipality to appoint sub-custodians who can also accept OPRA requests. Check with the Borough Clerk by calling 732-257-1999, ext. 525 to find out where your request should be submitted.
