City upgrades transparency
Technological upgrades will allow the Rock Falls City Council to rebroadcast meetings that it already broadcasts live on its public access channel. We salute the city for its commitment to transparency.
When Sauk Valley Media observes governments that don’t abide by transparency laws, we report the infractions in news stories and elaborate on our Opinion page.
Obedience to the Illinois Open Meetings Act and the Illinois Freedom of Information Act, after all, is not optional.
Those laws are meant to ensure that governmental business is conducted in the open, where citizens can listen to the formulation of government policies, see how their tax dollars are spent, and gain access to public records.
