Requests and Fulfillment
Public records held by the East Lake Tarpon Special Fire Control District are available upon request for inspection or copying pursuant to Chapter 119, Florida Statutes, and Article I, s. 24 of the State Constitution.

Some public records are already provided for the public on the district’s website at elfr.org and are immediately available for viewing and downloading .

Other records are not as readily available and will have to be located, reviewed for information exempt from disclosure, and redacted if necessary. The time to fulfill a public records request will vary depending upon the particular records requested and the volume of the request. Our Records Custodian, Katy Cunningham, is committed to fulfilling your request as quickly and efficiently as is reasonably possible.
