Right to Know form


In accordance with the Pennsylvania Right-To-Know Law (Act 3 of 2008), The Municipality of Norristown is responsible for ensuring that residents have access to public records. 


The Right-To-Know Law guarantees the right of residents to access, view, and obtain copies of public records in the possession of state and local government agencies. The Law defines a “record” as “information, regardless of physical form, that documents a transaction or activity of an agency and that is created, received or retained pursuant to law or in connection with a transaction, business, or activity of the agency.”


To learn more about what records can be requested and about the types of information exempt from the Right-To-Know Law, meaning that they cannot be requested, view our downloadable Right-To-Know Request Form.
