Maryland Public Information Act Requests
Maryland Public Information Act (PIA)
The public's right to information about government activities lies at the heart of a democratic government. Maryland's Public Information Act (PIA) grants the people of this State a broad right of access to public records while protecting legitimate governmental interests and the privacy rights of individual citizens. Requests for public records always begin with a government agency (State, county, or municipal). See the General Information and FAQ's section of this page for additional guidance.
The Town of Upper Marlboro Office of the Town Clerk takes great care to handle all PIA requests made by residents and other parties of interest. All requests must be submitted in writing (email, letter, or completed Town form).
