Making a Public Records Requests

Citizens who would like to make a public records request under Florida Statute 119 should call
(352) 540-6780, email PublicInformation@HernandoCounty.us or visit the Hernando County Government Center located at 20 N. Main Street, Room 263, in Brooksville.

When making a request, you will not be required to give your name or provide the reason for a request as a condition of fulfilling the request. Under Florida law, email addresses are public records. If you do not want your email address released in response to a public records request, do not send your request electronically but make your request via phone.

When fulfilling a public records request, a fee may be charged if a request takes a substantial amount of staff time or county resources to complete. Florida public records laws state that requests for information must be filled in a reasonable amount of time. In addition to any fee estimates, county staff will give you an estimate of the time needed to gather the requested public records. Some public records are exempt by Florida Statutes.
