(a) Records maintained by an auxiliary organization shall be available to the public to inspect or copy at all times during the office hours of the auxiliary organization, except as hereafter provided. The records subject to inspection or copying by the public pursuant to this section shall include any identifiable writing containing information relating to the conduct of the auxiliary organization that is prepared, owned, used, or retained by an auxiliary organization. Any reasonably segregable portion of a record shall be promptly available for inspection and copying after redacting those portions exempt from disclosure by law.

(b) Upon a request for a copy of a record that reasonably describes an identifiable record, an auxiliary organization shall make the record promptly available within a reasonable time to any person upon payment of fees covering only the direct cost of duplication, except with respect to records maintained by an auxiliary organization exempt from disclosure by law. Nothing in this article shall be construed to permit an auxiliary organization to delay or obstruct the inspection or copying of public records.

(c) If a member of the public requests to inspect a public record or obtain a copy of a record held by an auxiliary organization, the organization shall assist the person to make a focused and effective request that reasonably describes an identifiable record or records.
