What is IPRA?

The Inspection of Public Records Act (IPRA) allows access to public records of governmental entities in New Mexico. By law, every person has the right to inspect public records of the Town of Edgewood.

IPRA requests are for existing documents maintained by the Town of Edgewood. The records custodian or staff are not required to compile information or create documents to fulfill requests.

The Town has a duty to accept, evaluate, and fulfill requests to inspect public records with 'reasonable particularity'. Broad requests may not be fulfilled due to detailed specifics not being provided.

You can request public records of the Town of Edgewood in two ways:

  1. Click here to submit a request online OR download the form to print and fill it in by hand to mail or hand deliver the request.

  • The fee to print hard copies on 8.5 x 17" paper or smaller is $1.00 per sheet.
