In October 2020, Spalding County implemented an Open Records Portal to provide our Citizens with easy access to make Open Records Requests as provided for by the Official Code of Georgia.
The following link with get you into the portal: https://spaldingcountyga.justfoia.com/publicportal/home/newrequest
All Open Records Requests are to be submitted through this portal. You are able to make requests directly to the Sheriff’s Office and the Clerk of Court’s Office. All other requests should be made through the General Open Requests and will be routed to the appropriate department.
In accordance with the Georgia Statute, any copies would be provided at the cost provided for in O.C.G.A. §50-18-71(b). To that end, the costs of any copies would be on the basis of $.10 per regular page. Also, the requestor is responsible for the time expended beyond the initial fifteen (15) minutes to search for the documents, to retrieve the documents and to copy them or to supervise the requestor’s inspection of them, billable at the rate of the lowest salaried full time employee capable of performing this task in view of the custodian.
