Benton County Data Practices Requests
The Data Practices Act (Minnesota Statutes, Chapter 13) requires County Boards to adopt policies governing how individuals can make data practices requests. This page contains the forms necessary for you to make such requests.
One policy covers requests by individuals for data about themselves. The second policy covers all other data requests. Each policy describes how to make a request, the County's timeframe for responding to requests, a form to use when making a request and the cost of any copies.
