Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) requests are to be made at the Village Administration Office at 600 Main St. NW, Bourbonnais, Illinois, between the hours of 8:00 a.m. - 4:30 p.m., Monday through Friday, or through the direct link below. Except in instances when records are furnished immediately, FOIA Officers, or their designees, shall receive requests submitted to the Village under the Freedom of Information Act, ensure that the Village responds to requests in a timely fashion and issue responses under the Act.

How many days does the public body have to respond to a FOIA request?

The Village of Bourbonnais has five business days from the day the request is received, and 21 business days to respond to a request that is made for a commercial purpose. The working day response timeline begins the day after any employee or official of the public body received the request for information. However, that time period may be extended for an additional five business days from the date of the original due date if:

  • The requested information is stored at a different location;
  • The request requires the collection of a substantial number of documents;
  • The request requires an extensive search;
  • The requested records have not been located and require additional effort to find;
  • The requested records need to be reviewed by staff who can determine whether they are exempt from FOIA;
  • The requested records cannot be produced without unduly burdening the public body or interfering with its operations; or
  • The request requires the public body to consult with another public body that has substantial interest in the subject matter of the request.

If additional time is needed, the public body must notify the requestor in writing within five business days after the receipt of the request of the statutory reasons for the extension and when the requested information will be produced.
