The Town of Cary has long demonstrated a strong commitment to upholding both the letter and the spirit of North Carolina’s public records laws, which include but are not limited to North Carolina General Statutes chapters 132 and 160A-168.

We are focused on ensuring an open, timely, accurate and complete exchange of public information with our citizens, and this commitment is articulated in our organization’s Statement of Values as well as our public records policy.

Reviewing a Public Record

Access a great number of Town of Cary public records at your convenience via this Web site by using the search feature or browsing through our agendas and minutes index.

If you can’t find what you’re looking for, simply e-mail the Town staff member whom you believe is responsible for keeping the records – the custodian. In your email, share with the custodian exactly what you’re looking for. Be as specific as possible by including the date, title and/or topic of the records you’re interested in reviewing. Be sure to tell the custodian how quickly you’re hoping to be able to review the records so that he or she can do his or her best to meet your needs.

If you’re not sure which staff member might be the custodian, send your email inquiry to the appropriate department director, and he/she will help you. For Town Council public records, please contact the Town Clerk’s Office. All public records requests for development are processed by the Planning and Development Services Department and can be emailed directly to

Town of Cary staff will work within the guidelines of our public records policy when fulfilling your public records request.
