Johnson County Public Records Policy


Johnson County seeks to fulfill all open records requests to the extent allowed by the Iowa State Open Records Act. Please note that many public records can be accessed online.

All requests for information will be acted upon in a timely manner and in accordance with the law. Many requests can be responded to quickly. However, some require additional research or review.

State law permits certain records classified as confidential to be considered exempt from the public records requests. Confidential records include but are not limited to medical records, employee related files, documents concerning litigation or claims, and names or addresses of complainants. Confidential records may be withheld, and confidential information within an otherwise open record may be redacted prior to a record’s release for public examination and copying.
