Open government- burden and exposure
Despite earlier reports in the online world, the Jackson Township Council is just fine with the concept of open and transparent government. They simply prefer that no damage is done in providing transparency.
The controversy began late last week when the agenda for the April 24th meeting was published on the township website. Listed as a discussion item was a request from Council Vice President Updegrave calling for a resolution to oppose Bills S-1451
, modifying the Open Public Meetings Act, and Open Public Records Act respectively.
