Our public-records Policy:
It is the policy of the Alabama ABC Board to promptly provide citizens with public records upon request (subject to the payment of reasonable fees, if necessary, to applicable laws protecting sensitive information, and to the interest of the general public in having the business of government carried on efficiently and without undue interference).
Submitting a public records request:
You may submit a public-records request by completing a public-records request form, which is available here.
What to expect:
We will respond as promptly as possible to all public-records requests we receive consistent with the demands of our functions as determined by state law.
The nature of your request will dictate how promptly we are able to respond. If your request clearly identifies a specific, discrete document, we will respond more quickly than if your request requires substantial staff time to process. A request will require substantial staff time to process if it is difficult to identify and/or retrieve documents, or measures must be taken to redact or otherwise withhold legally protected information.
In addition, we are permitted by state law to charge reasonable fees in connection with processing public-records requests. We will notify you in advance of the fees you likely will incur as a result of your request.
