The Narberth Civic Association and open government

We are gratified to note that the Narberth borough website has a new post on its home page, Stay Informed and Make Your Voice Heard. The links lead to a information that parallels the NCA's Guide to Borough Government, along with the statement "Narberth Borough government is committed to openness and transparency."

We thank the borough for this update and modestly hope that it was in part a response to the request we read into the official record at the Council Caucus meeting of February 4, 2015:

The mission of the Narberth Civic Association (NCA) is to promote and facilitate citizen involvement in our Narberth community. The NCA encourages well-informed citizens to participate in an open and transparent governance of our community.
Therefore the Narberth Civic Association requests that Narberth Borough government post on its website its policies, practices and procedures regarding public access to government records.

What's next?

The NCA considers the posting of these policies and procedures a good first step in facilitating citizen access, to which we hope to see further enhancements. The 25 cents per page fee charged by the borough is mandated by the state of PA's form as "up to $ 0.25 per page" which "can be waived". Furthermore, Narberth's document makes no provision for requesting electronic (as opposed to printed) records, although this is permitted under state statute. PA Enhanced Electronic Access Fee Request

The Narberth Civic Association will continue to work with our elected public servants to improve your access to information and lower barriers to your input and involvment, in accordance with our mission to build a better community for all of us, Narbs and Nearbs, citizens and businesses.
