Vallejo, CA – Continuing its leadership in civic innovation, the City of Vallejo is implementing an open public records portal. Online at and built by NextRequest, the portal will allow the City to streamline its processes and provide records to the public more easily.

“The City of Vallejo strives to provide the best services to their residents. NextRequest is a tool that helps us with that goal by providing an efficient way to release information to the public,” said City Manager Daniel E. Keen.

The public records portal will also help connect the public with information that may already exist online. For example, it can automatically direct a request for birth and death certificates to the Solano County website where that information is kept. This allows requesters to quickly and easily find the information they need.

“We are looking forward to putting out our records request process online,” said Dawn Abrahamson, Vallejo City Clerk. “NextRequest is a great service for the public and enhances the City’s commitment to open government by making the process easier for the public as well as our staff in coordinating requests for records that are received.”

“Vallejo has continued to invest in technology that helps their residents” says Reed Duecy-Gibbs, NextRequest’s Chief Product Officer. “Within these efforts we’re excited to play a role around public records requests.”
