Open Records Requests
The Agency Open Records Officer ("AORO") for the Borough of Indiana is Communications & Grants Coordinator, Kyle Mudry. All Open Records submissions should be made to firstname.lastname@example.org or via postal service at 80 North 8th Street, Indiana, PA 15701, using the designated Open Records form on this page, below:
The AORO performs specific functions under state law:
receives requests for public records,
directs requests to other appropriate persons within the Borough or to the appropriate persons in another agency,
tracks the Borough's progress in responding to requests, and
issues interim and final responses.
When the AORO receives a request for a public record, he or she will:
state the date of receipt on the written request,
compute the day on which the five-day response expires and make a notation of that date on the written request,
maintain an electronic or paper copy of a written request, including all documents submitted with the request until the request has been fulfilled, and
create a file and keep all of the following:
the original request,
a copy of the response, and
a record of communications with the requester.
If the request is denied, the written request will be maintained for 30 days.
If an appeal is filed, the records will be maintained until a final determination is issued or the appeal is deemed denied.
Appeals can be sent to the Office of Open Records. The mailing address for the Office of Open Records is:
Commonwealth of Pennsylvania
