What we asked for: The department’s operating budget.
What the law says: Government records and papers, such as budgets, bank statements, tax levies, utility accounts and contracts are public records.
How they did: Director George Page told our reporter he would send her a copy of the upcoming fiscal year budget once it was completed. He said a current budget could be found at a local library or online at www.brunsco.net.
What they said: Page said the parks and recreation staff is aware of public records laws, and are able to furnish the records to the public.
“Of course, for things that are related to personnel, we send them to human resources. For bills, budget or any documents like that, we accommodate citizens,” Page said.
“We treat the public as customers. We may not be able to [obtain the information] right that second, but we try to do it in a timely manner.”
