All original minutes of every City Council meeting, every City Resolution (policy), and every City Ordinance (law) ever adopted by the City of Simi Valley are maintained by the City Clerk. The City Clerk’s Office codifies the ordinances adopted by the City Council into the Municipal Code and Development Code for easy access by the public and City staff. The City Clerk also keeps deeds, agreements, annexation records, and many other vital City records in its custody.
The City Clerk is happy to respond to requests for public information and records, in compliance with the California Public Records Act (CPRA). CPRA requests may be delayed. Due to the State of Emergency declared by the Governor March 4, 2020, and the State of Emergency declared by the Simi Valley City Council on March 16, 2020, both due to the COVID-19 coronavirus outbreak, a response to your public records request may be delayed. Unfortunately, City operations are limited at this time.
If at all possible, the City requests that you consider delaying your request in order to allow the City to more readily meet the challenging tasks required during this emergency situation. In compliance with amendments to the Public Records Act under SB 272 (Government Code section 6270.5), the City of Simi Valley's Enterprise System Catalog list can be accessed.
