As of 2009, the Sunshine Act and the PA Right to Know Law have worked together to provide government transparency, and give citizens access to open records to which they are entitled. Requests can be made to review or receive copies (for a nominal fee) from any public body. A request should be specific and should be made to seek records, not to have questions answered. There is a difference between “How much money did you spend on the carnival” vs. “Please provide a record that reflects the expenditures by the Township for the carnival.”
You must make your request directly to the agency or agencies that hold(s) the records you are seeking.
