What public records do I have access to?
The New Jersey Open Public Records Act (OPRA) gives greater access to public inspection and duplication of disclosable government records. It is important to know that OPRA does NOT cover the judicial branch or municipal court, as they are regulated by other statutes. The public has access to government records except for those documents that fall under defined exclusions. Under OPRA, the Hamilton Township Clerk has been designated as the official Custodian of Records. A summary of the procedures, forms and timetables for access are explained in more detail below.
