Open Records Requests Processed by Newtown Township in First Half of 2019

The Pennsylvania Right to Know (RTK) Law Definition, also known as the Pennsylvania Sunshine Law, is a series of laws designed to guarantee that the public has access to public records of governmental bodies in Pennsylvania.

Thanks to Open Records Officer Micah Lewis, aka, Township Manager, I was able to analyze the open records requests processed by Newtown Township in in the first half of 2019. You can compare these data with the analysis of all requests processed in 2018 here.

NOTE: These data do NOT include open record requests submitted to the Newtown Police Department. More on that here.

In the first half of 2019, Newtown Township processed 37 Open Records Requests in compliance with the State’s Sunshine Law. That compares to 55 requests in the first 6 months of 2018.

A total of 16 (43%) were from businesses/unions. There were an equal number of request from individuals. About one quarter of requests were for building permits. There were no requests for records from the media.
