The Town of Kimball is dedicated to providing public access of records to the residents of Tennessee, while continuing to protect the integrity and organization of public records. The Town Recorder’s Office has developed a centralized approach to efficiently fulfill open records request by Tennessee residents.

There is no charge to view records.

If staff time exceeds the labor threshold of one (1) hour to produce the requested material, the requester is subject to be charged the hourly wage of the employee who is assisting with the record request beyond the first hour.
