Submit a Freedom of Information Request

It is the policy of the Village of Wheeling to process all Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) requests in accordance with state law. All requests for records must be submitted to the Village in writing.

For the most efficient option, Click Here to submit your request electronically. As an alternative, you can also click here to download a fillable (PDF) Freedom of Information Request Form that can be emailed to, faxed to (847) 215-5175, or sent via regular mail. 
The Village will respond to each written request within five (5) working days after receipt of a non-commercial request. The Village will supply up to fifty (50) black-and-white pages of requested records NOT intended for a commercial use at no charge to the requester. Fees for additional copying or certification fees are as follows: black & white copies (letter or legal) - $0.15¢ per page; oversize or color copies – cost of reproduction; Certified copies - $1.00 per document. If applicable, copies of public records will be provided only upon payment of the required fees. Certain records are exempt from inspection; if a document is exempt, you will be notified. A photo ID may be required to obtain some documents.

All notices and other communications relating to a request for public records, and all requests for any other information relating to the Village’s implementation of the Illinois Freedom of Information Act, should be directed to the Primary FOIA Officer at or 847-499-9082. To view the Illinois Freedom of Information Act click here.


As you know, on March 20, 2020 Illinois Governor J.B. Pritzker issued a Shelter In Place Order, which is effective March 21, 2020 at 5:00 p.m. to April 7, 2020.  Accordingly, all Village staff is either unavailable or devoted to public safety tasks.  In light of the foregoing, the Village respectfully requests that you consider waiting to submit your FOIA request until after the Shelter In Place Order has been lifted.  Alternatively, the Village requests that you agree to waive the statutory response deadlines and allow the Village to respond to the request as soon as is practicable. If you are agreeable to waiving the response deadlines, please affirmatively state that in your request. In the event you do not choose one of the foregoing options, the Village will respond to your request pursuant to state law, which includes the ability to identify and deny a request if it is determined to be unduly burdensome.
Thank you in advance for your understanding and patience during this time.
