LCHA's Right-To-Know Policy and Procedure


This policy establishes the Lancaster City Housing Authority's (LCHA) procedures for meeting its obligations under the Pennsylvania Right-To-Know Law (RTK Law). LCHA recognizes the value of making information available to the public, and is committed to continually improving public access to public information and fostering public participation in the decision-making process.

Act 3 of 2008, as signed by Gov. Edward G. Rendell on February 14, 2008. Effective January 1, 2009

"The Mission of the Office of Open Records is to enforce the state's Right-to-Know law and to serve as a resource for citizens, public officials and members of the media in obtaining public records of their government."

A citizen's right-to-know, sometimes known as freedom of information, fosters accountability, prevents abuses of power and promotes trust in government. Pennsylvania has codified this important right to access government records in Act 3 of 2008, called the Right-to-Know law.
