The Town of Bloomfield is committed to open government and aims to improve transparency through increased access to public information. Connecticut law protects the right to access public information and has long mandated government disclosure of records. The Town fulfills this responsibility to citizens by pro-actively posting commonly requested documents to its website and by providing access to or copies of public records upon request. If you do not find the content you seek on the website Submit a Public Records Request.
Public records are broadly defined in Connecticut law. Public records include nearly all documentary materials or data of any form generated, received or maintained by the Town, its employees, boards, committees and commissions. In order to protect certain privacy and security interests, there are certain narrowly defined statutory exemptions prohibiting particular public records, or portions thereof, from disclosure pursuant to CGA Sec. 1-210. View the list of public record exemptions.
The following information is offered to guide the public in gaining access to public records in the custody of the Town of Bloomfield. The information and lists contained herein are not exhaustive, and any questions or concerns regarding public records should be directed to the Town Clerk's Office at 860-769-3507.
