The Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) allows members of the public to request records from Illinois municipalities. The FOIA was established to make Illinois municipalities accountable to the public for their actions and prevent municipalities from conducting business without the public's knowledge.
With regard to FOIA, requests for public records must be made in writing. A Village of Lyons FOIA Request Form is available for your convenience. If submitting a paper copy request, please send or deliver it to the following address.
Attn: FOIA Officer
Village of Lyons
4200 S. Lawndale Ave
Lyons, IL 60534
Please use the link below to view the State of Illinois FOIA statute and access the Lyons FOIA Request Forms.
The Village prepares many documents for public distribution. Many of these documents are available on this Internet site; we encourage you to browse the site for documents that interest you. We do not process requests for public information materials as Freedom of Information Act requests.
