Sunshine week in Grandview Heights

Published March 23, 2019 by justicewg

This is Sunshine Week — an annual nationwide celebration of access to public information sponsored by the American Society of News Editors and Reporters Committee for Freedom of the Press. It’s a sunny day here in Grandview too. Let’s hear what Ohio Ohio Attorney General Dave Yost says about public records requests during National Sunshine Week.

“The public records of the government belong to the people, not the office holders who created those documents.”

You don’t need a special form, or say magic words. Just get a message to the public office holder, explaining as best you can the documents you need to receive a copy of. You don’t have to identify yourself, or explain why you need the record.

Read all about the public record laws in the new updated Yellow book on the Ohio Attorney General website.
