DeKalb County Board Chairman Mark Pietrowski and the DeKalb County State’s Attorney’s Office will host a training seminar for all local governments on the Freedom of Information Act and the Opens Meetings Act. The seminar also is open to the public.
The seminar will be at 6 p.m. Thursday, Sept. 12, at the DeKalb County Farm Bureau, 1350 W. Prairie Drive in Sycamore.
On hand will be members of the Illinois Attorney General’s Public Access Counselor’s Office.
This is an opportunity for the county, cities, towns, townships and others to learn about application of these acts directly from the Public Access Counselor’s staff, who are entrusted with their enforcement, according to a news release. There also will be a question-and-answer period so government officials can inquire as to correct practices.
For information, call Tasha Sims at 815-895-1630 or Chief Civil Assistant State’s Attorney David Berault at 815-895-7164.
