City Commission Emails Now Available Online

5/29/2014

The City of Gainesville is pleased to announce that access to City Commissioner emails is now available online to the public on the City of Gainesville website at http://ccemail.cityofgainesville.org/. Site visitors can browse email correspondence for current and outgoing commissioners or search message archives by date, sender, recipient, subject and/or key words in the body of the text. Email search results may be exported or printed individually or in bulk.

“We are very pleased to offer our citizens greater access and openness to our public records, which includes commission emails,” said Gainesville Mayor Ed Braddy. “I am proud that this city commission stands with me in this effort to improve our accountability to the public through increased government transparency.”

Commissioner emails on this site may include SPAM or solicitations from outside entities and may contain inappropriate material. Email attachments may also display in a binary method that will appear as garbled text. Links to the site are also available on the City Commission Web page at http://www.cityofgainesville.org/CityCommission.aspx and the Clerk of the Commission Web page at http://www.cityofgainesville.org/ClerkOfTheCommission.aspx. The Commissioner Email Web page also includes links to commissioner Web pages, commission meeting minutes and Gainesville’s municipal code of ordinances.

This new feature is solely for informational purposes as a public service, and is not provided to comply with Florida Public Records Law. Not all emails sent or received by City Commissioners may display on the site. Some correspondence with personally identifying information may not be directly available in compliance with state regulations. If anyone wishes to view an email not provided on this site, a public records request may be submitted to the City of Gainesville Clerk of the City Commission at clerks@cityofgainesville.org.
