Why Public Notice Should Remain in Newspapers

Along with open meeting and freedom of information laws, public notice is an essential element of the three-legged stool of government transparency

It’s newspapers and newspaper websites vs government websites

and newspaper websites have a much larger audience.

Moving notice from newspapers to government websites would reduce the presence of public notices on the internet

Requiring independent, third-party newspapers to ensure that public notices run in accordance with the law helps prevent government officials from hiding information they would prefer the public not to see

This is not about “newspapers vs the internet”.
