WHAT IS COVERED BY THE LAW: RECORDS NOT QUESTIONS

Make sure when you file a Right to Know request, you are seeking records and not just asking questions. The law governs release of records, not answering questions.

A record is defined as “any information regardless of its physical form or character that documents a transaction or activity of an agency AND is created, received, or retained pursuant to law OR in connection with a transaction, business or activity of an agency.” AND is created, received, or retained pursuant to law OR in connection with a transaction, business or activity of an agency.”

Records can take many forms, including papers, letters, maps, books, tapes, photographs, film or sound recordings, information stored or maintained electronically and a data-processed or image-processed documents. Note that e-mails can also be a form of public records, subject to any exceptions.

Please feel free to send any questions you may have that are not covered by the Right to Know Law to office@westpikeland.com and we will respond in a timely manner.
