Right To Know

​It is the policy of the Borough to comply with the dictates of the Act that all records of the Borough are open and accessible, both for viewing and copying, unless closed (exempted) under the provisions of the Act, other statute(s) or judicial interpretation, and that the burden of proving that a Borough record is non-public or that an exemption applies is on the Borough in denying access/disclosure; provided, however, that the presumption of access shall not apply to Borough records that are: (1) protected by a privilege (e.g., attorney-client, doctor-patient); (2) exempt from disclosure under federal or state law; or (3) exempt under Section 708 of the Act.
