Albany County now accepts Public Information ("FOIL") requests by our new Portal. Where the records exist in electronic form, and no FOIL exemptions apply, these records will be emailed back to you along with our response. Please be aware that most County records do not exist in electronic form, and that you still may have to select whether to inspect the records in person at no charge or to have copies made for 25 cents per page.  If you have any further questions feel free to contact the Clerk's Public Information Officer at 518-487-5110

Please note - Court Cases are not available through FOIL. Call or visit the County Clerk's Office for further information, or make requests directly to the Court:
