Freedom of Information Requests

Avon Township is committed to transparency and providing the public with access to our records. Many of our records are available on our public Google Drive [open here in a new tab] and video of our meetings is available on our public YouTube Channel [open here in a new tab]. These systems are constantly being updated to provide as many records and documents as possible.

If you are unable to find the record you are looking for, you can make a FOIA request to Avon Township.
