Let the Sunshine In: Transparency and Openness in Local Government

Laws requiring openness and access to government are called “Sunshine Laws.” In Vermont, matters of local government frequently invoke the Open Meeting Law, the Public Records Act, and conflicts of interest requirements, often simultaneously. In this session, we will review each of these three areas of law and the legal obligations they create for selectboards.

Presenters: Garrett Baxter, Senior Staff Attorney, VLCT Municipal Assistance Center, Carl Andeer, Staff Attorney II, VLCT Municipal Assistance Center, Susan Senning, Staff Attorney I, VLCT Municipal Assistance Center
