Did you know that you had a right to know?
The Right-To-Know law was signed in 2008 and took effect January 1, 2009. Westmoreland County has many ways in which citizens can access their right to know...
Before submitting Records Request Form, please note that the law allows citizens open access to records about the operations and running of the County; court records are not included (Clerk of Courts, Register of Wills, Prothonotary, etc.) You should also check to see if the information you seek is available through the county's existing Public Record Searches. .
The State of PA’s open records website provides the detailed information regarding the law. An excerpt of that information is below:
WHAT IS COVERED BY THE LAW: Records, not Questions
Make sure when you file a RTK request, you are seeking records and not just asking questions. The law governs release of records, not answering questions.
