Delaware FOIA raises questions regarding requirements


GEORGETOWN — Municipalities are scrambling to comply with what some town officials say are newly expanded requirements of the Freedom of Information Act.  The deputy attorney general for FOIA matters denies any major changes, noting a public outreach campaign is being organized to clarify open meeting requirements.

About 30 town representatives from throughout Sussex County gathered at Lighthouse Landing restaurant at Sussex County Airport in Georgetown to discuss Delaware’s Freedom of Information Act with Deputy Attorney General Jason Staib.
