CITY HOSTS STATE'S PUBLIC ACCESS COUNSELOR FOR OPEN MEETINGS, PUBLIC RECORDS WORKSHOP JULY 30

July 22, 2014 - The City of Fort Wayne is bringing Indiana’s public access counselor, Luke Britt, to give a public presentation about the state’s public access laws at 5:30 p.m. Wednesday, July 30 in the Omni Room in the lower level of Citizens Square. Britt will cover the requirements and responsibilities of local government and the public for Indiana’s Open Meetings Law and Access to Public Records Act.

“As the mayor of Indiana’s second-largest city, I am committed to openness and transparency in conducting the public’s business here at the City of Fort Wayne,” said Mayor Tom Henry. “We have put unprecedented amounts of data on the City’s website during my time in office, which allows anyone access to this information at any time. This session with the public access counselor is an opportunity for members of the public to have a better understanding of these laws that cover local government’s actions.”

It’s unfortunate that Council amended an ordinance that had been tabled for weeks rather than going through the process of introduction, discussion, and passage. This approach did not allow taxpayers and public safety personnel, particularly the Fort Wayne Police Department, the opportunity to gain a full understanding of the impact of Council’s decision.
