Public Notices: December 13, 2018

What is a public notice?

Public Notices inform citizens of the everyday activities of government. From government spending and developing new policies to requests for proposals and hearings about retail marijuana licenses, it is important for people to be informed of actions taken by public officials that affect citizens’ everyday lives.

Public Notices are essential to a democracy and an informed citizenry. Without Public Notices, citizens cannot adequately make informed decisions.

While the Internet is a great resource for information, Public Notices have been and remain the most effective in newspapers. Newspaper are the watchdogs of their local communities and can most effectively monitor the actions of their respective local governments. This not only allows local residents to be informed, but it also forces local public officials to be held accountable. Additionally, Public Notices in newspapers are permanent records that cannot be altered or deleted, and the printed version provides a permanent archive and third-party verification of authenticity.
