Open Public Records Act
In January, 2002, the Open Public Records Act was signed into law by then Acting Governor DiFrancesco which requires government records to be readily accessible for inspection, copying or examination.
A request form, which includes the requestor’s name, address and telephone number and a specific, brief description of the record sought, must be completed and submitted to the Municipal Clerk as the Custodian of Public Records.
Names, addresses and telephone numbers are considered releasable, however, unlisted telephone numbers are not releasable. Many of our in-house forms have been amended to include a check-off box to indicate an unlisted telephone number. This information will not be released to a requestor.
