The process for how a public agency should respond to a request for a public Record is defined in Ohio Revised Code 149.43 (B)(1):

“Upon request and subject to division (B)(8) of this section, all public records responsive to the request shall be promptly prepared and made available for inspection to any person at all reasonable times during regular business hours. Subject to division (B)(8) of this section, upon request, a public office or person responsible for public records shall make copies of the requested public Record available at cost and within a reasonable period of time. If a public Record contains information that is exempt from the duty to permit public inspection or to copy the public Record, the public office or the person responsible for the public Record shall make available all of the information within the public Record that is not exempt.”
