How to Make a Filing with the Board
The Records and Information Center houses all the filings of the Iowa Utilities Board (Board). Any interested person may examine all public records of the Board in person at the offices of the board during the regular business hours, from 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Monday through Friday, excluding official state holidays. Requests for available information also may be submitted in writing. Such a request must comply with requirements found in Iowa Administrative Code 199 Chapter 1.9(7)b. Unless otherwise provided by law, all public records, other than confidential records, maintained by the Board shall be made available for public inspection.
