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”.
