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.
The Right-To-Know Law grants the Municipality FIVE (5) Business Days to respond upon receiving your request. Should the Municipality find it necessary, a THIRTY (30) day extension may be allotted to the agency for additional time to respond to your request.
