Public Records

The Port of Palm Beach is committed to Florida’s Open Government and Public Records Laws. Article I, Section 24 of the Florida Constitution sets forth the right of every person “to inspect or copy any public records made or received in connection with the official business of any public body, officer, or employee of the state, or persons acting in their behalf, except with respect to records exempted pursuant to this section or specifically made confidential by this Constitution.”

What are Public Records?
Public Records are all documents, papers, letters, maps, books, tapes, photographs, films, sound records, data processing software, or other materials, regardless of physical form, characteristics, or means of transmission, made or received pursuant to law or ordinance or in connection with the transaction of official business by the agency.
