Pennsylvania’s Right to Know Law, Act 3 of 2008 (RTKL), which became effective on January 1, 2009, requires that governmental agencies must provide access to public information, designate an Open Records Officer and implement procedures to provide records when requested.
OPEN RECORDS POLICY
Borough Council formally adopted an Open-Records policy by a Resolution approved in January 2009, and reaffirmed the Borough's commitment to the Open-Records Policy by approving Resolution No. 3 of 2016 on May 16, 2016. Resolution No. 3 of 2016 provides that the Borough Secretary shall be the Open Records Officer and sets forth guidelines for providing access to records. You can review the full text of Resolution No. 3 of 2016 by clicking HERE. The Pennsylvania Office of Open Records has published a Citizen's Guide to the Right-to-Know law that provides summary information about the law, and procedures for requesting records or for filing appeals when records are not provided.
The Borough has made every effort to make commonly requested records immediately available by posting them on this website. Records that are not available on the website can be requested by submitting the Pennsylvania Office of Open Records Standard Request Form. Request forms may be submitted by email, US Mail or in person (by appointment only) as follows:
US Mail Borough of Bear Creek Village, PO Box 332, Bear Creek, PA 18602
In Person call 570-728-9106 to schedule an appointment
