Maryland Public Information Act Requests
Maryland Public Information Act
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).
To Make A Request:
Email: Requests can be made by emailing Clerk@UpperMarlboroMD.gov. The email subject line MUST include "PIA Request", and the body of the email must include details on the requested information.
In Person: Requests can be made in person at Town Hall located at 14211 School Lane during regular office hours (Monday-Friday 9am-5pm). We encourage you to call ahead at 301-627-6905 to ensure the Town Clerk or PIA representative is available to assist you with your request.
By Mail: Written requests can be mailed to: Town of Upper Marlboro PIA Requests P.O. Box 280 Upper Marlboro MD 20773. We ask that you provide detailed information being requested, valid contact information, and other pertained information in the letter.
