The Narberth Civic Association and open government

At the Council Caucus meeting of February 4, 2015, the NCA read into the official record:

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.

Why did we do this?

The ongoing discussion about the future of downtown Narberth and the former gas station at 100 Forrest Avenue has demonstrated wide interest and disagreement among our neighbors. The discussion has often been characterized by speculation, assumptions, and the absence of facts. Frequently we've heard "How do I find that out?" and "Does anybody knows why (or what or where or when) that is?"

What do we want?

We've asked our borough council to post on Narberth borough's website: how do we get public information?

We believe they want what we're asking for. Our seven councilors are our neighbors, elected by us, and donate considerable time and effort to serve us, without pay. Our Guide to borough government clearly demonstrates that they advocate community participation and open information. It was produced in cooperation with and first drafted by our borough council members.

What's next?

Information fosters trust. Trust enables dialog, cooperation, participation. Informed participation builds a better community for all of us, Narbs and Nearbs, citizens and businesses. This is your Narberth Civic Association's mission and we will continue to work with our elected public servants to improve your access to information and lower barriers to your input and involvment.

Thank you for your support,
The NCA Board of Directors

600 BOOKS FOR THE NEW LIBRARY

Here's the project in a nutshell: A contribution of 6OO new books to The Narberth Library at the new Community Center-the Y. M. C. A.

No, I am not going to give the 600 books myself and I am not going to ask anyone else to do the Andrew Carnegie act. But if 25 ot us will each do his or her part we can put those 6OO volumes on the library shelves within a year, and not one of us will have to sacrifice a single lamh chop or one hox of strawberries.

WHO WILL JOIN ME IN THIS LIBRARY PROJECT? E. A. Muschamp.
