Submit a Freedom of Information Request

It is the policy of the Village of Wheeling to process all Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) requests in accordance with state law. All requests for records must be submitted to the Village in writing.

The Village of Wheeling is pleased to announce the addition of JustFOIA. While other methods of submitting your request are still available, we are pleased to offer a more convenient option. To submit your request in the most efficient manner or to check on the status of an existing request, please click www.wheelingil.gov/Submit-a-Request where you will find links to the JustFOIA portals.

You can also click here to download a fillable (PDF) Freedom of Information Request Form that can be emailed to foia@wheelingil.gov, faxed to (847) 215-5175 or sent via regular mail.  Note: all requests for public records, regardless of how they are submitted, will be entered into and managed through JustFOIA. 
 
The Village will respond to each written request within five (5) working days after receipt of a non-commercial request. The Village will supply up to fifty (50) black-and-white pages of requested records NOT intended for a commercial use at no charge to the requester. Fees for additional copying or certification fees are as follows: black & white copies (letter or legal) - $0.15¢ per page; oversize or color copies – cost of reproduction; Certified copies - $1.00 per document. If applicable, copies of public records will be provided only upon payment of the required fees. Certain records are exempt from inspection; if a document is exempt, you will be notified. A photo ID may be required to obtain some documents.

All notices and other communications relating to a request for public records, all requests for copies of the Freedom of Information Rules, and all requests for any other information relating to the Village’s implementation of the Illinois Freedom of Information Act, should be directed to the Primary FOIA Officer at foia@wheelingil.gov or 847-499-9082.
