I. Introduction

The Village Charter’s Citizen’s Bill of Rights provides that: “All audits, reports, minutes, documents and other public records of the Village and its boards, agencies, departments and authorities shall be open for inspection at reasonable times and places convenient to the public.” The Florida Constitution, Article I, also provides a right for the public to inspect non‐ exempt public records, as does Chapter 119 of the Florida Statutes, which defines how government entities handle public records. This policy defines the responsibilities of Village Officials, the Village Administration and Employees, all Boards and Committee Members, Task Force Members, Volunteers, and those under contract with the Village.
