Attention Montclair Community

Effective immediately, and until rescinded, dine–in restaurants within the City of Montclair will be allowed to temporarily create or expand al fresco (outdoor) dining areas notwithstanding any preexisting limitations imposed under the Montclair Municipal Code. This City of Montclair Community Guidance is based on provisions of Dine–In Restaurants Guidance issued by the California Department of Public Health updated on Thursday, July 2, 2020 and Guidance on Closures of Sectors in Response to Covid–19 by Governor Newsom and the California Department of Public Health published on July 1, 2020.


In efforts to provide more testing opportunities for San Bernardino County residents, community testing events are being held throughout the county. At these testing events, samples are collected by inserting a swab up the nostril or into the mouth to the throat. These samples are then sent to a laboratory for COVID-19 testing. Events are free of charge and do not require health insurance.


On May 14, 2020, the County of San Bernardino launched the COVID-Compliant Business Partnership Program to support local small businesses and help ensure ongoing compliance with State and County health orders and direction.

Public Records Overview

The Public Records Act (Government Code Sections 6250-6276.48) is designed to give the public access to information in possession of public agencies. Public records are open to inspection at all times at no charge. Persons wishing to inspect City of Montclair public records may do so during regular office hours (Monday through Thursday, 7:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m.). Every person has a right to receive an exact copy of an identifiable record unless impracticable. Specific exemptions to disclosure are listed in Sections 6253.5-6253.7, 6254, 6254.1-6254.21, 6255, 6267, and 6276 of the Government Code.

"Records" include all forms of communication related to public business "regardless of physical form or characteristics, including any writing, picture, sound, or symbol; whether paper, fiber, magnetic, or other media." Electronic records are included, but software may be exempt.


Requesting Public Records

In most instances, unless documents are archived or need to be gathered, copies may be provided upon request. If that is not possible, the City has ten days to respond to a request. If additional time is necessary, requester will be notified in writing. The maximum amount of additional time allowed, pursuant to the Public Records Act, is 14 days.

Requests should include a clear and specific description of the information; the more specific you are with the information you are requesting, the more responsive we may be to your request. Whenever possible, please provide dates, subjects, titles, and the types of documents you are requesting.
