New Public Records Request Portal

The City of Jefferson has launched a new public records management system to improve efficiency and consistency in responding to public records requests.

The  NextRequest software will allow the public to submit requests directly to the City through a public portal. City officials are excited about the improved constituent service and transparency that this portal will bring to our community.

“Our new NextRequest Portal allows us to respond to public records requests efficiently and will centralize all requests in one system while keeping detailed audit trails to ensure compliance with the Sunshine Law,” said City Clerk Emily Donaldson. NextRequest provides robust help resources for public requesters to learn how to use the portal and access records.

The public can access the NextRequest software by going to the City of Jefferson Website and clicking on the Public Records Request link at the top, left of the page, on the City Clerk’s page or under the “How Do I - Request” link. The page can also be accessed by visiting
