The City of Morro Bay has a records portal available for browsing online. This provides instant access to various City records such as City Council Minutes, Ordinance and Resolutions.  Check back frequently as we are working to add additional records.  If you are unable to locate the record(s) you looking for in the online records portal, please submit a public records request form to obtain the record(s) you are searching for.
