The Town of Nashville is committed to being open, transparent, and accessible to our citizens and the general public.  We have long demonstrated our commitment to upholding North Carolina's public records laws, which include but are not limited to North Carolina General Statutes, Chapter 132 Public Records Statute and 160A-168 Privacy of Employee Personnel Records Statute .  These laws give the public access to information that is deemed a public record.

Reviewing a Public Record

Some of the more common requests for information come in the form of Meeting Minutes and Agendas, which can be found by browsing through our Town Council Minutes and Agendas    index. 

All other public records are kept at Town Hall  and are available for inspection during regular business hours.  In order to help provide you with the best service, please email the Town Staff Member  whom you believe is responsible for keeping the records, also known as the custodian.  In your email, please share with the custodian exactly what information you are looking for.   Be as specific as possible by including the date, title, and/or topic of the records you are interested in reviewing.  Please indicate how quickly you are hoping to review the records so the custodian can do their best to meet your needs.

If you are unsure of which staff member may be the custodian, please send your email to the Department Head and they will be glad to help you.  For all Town Council records, please contact the Town Clerk's Office.
