In the State of Wisconsin, access to government records is governed by Subchapter II of Chapter 19 of the Wisconsin Statutes. Under this law, each City of Milwaukee department head or elected official is the official custodian of the records of his or her department or office. Requests to examine or obtain copies of specific records should be addressed to that specific individual. Addresses can be obtained by using the Departments link at the top of this web page.
