Public Records

Open records and public records requests provide a mechanism for citizens to inspect or copy government records. It also provides for instances in which governmental bodies may elect to, or are required by law to, withhold government records from the public. By complying with Louisiana Public Records Laws and the Freedom of Information Act, the Town of Jonesboro is committed to transparency within our local government. If you have questions, please feel free to contact us at Town Hall.
