More information available under new NY open government law

From The Daily Cortlandt:

CROTON-ON-HUDSON, N.Y. – The agendas and supporting documents for most government meetings will have to be posted online at least a day in advance, according to a bill that Gov. Andrew Cuomo signed into law last week, as an amendment to New York’s Open Meetings laws.

Despite the new amendment being what Abraham Zambrano, Croton Village Manager, calls an “unfunded mandate,” he said he believes the law will help the public become more informed. “Whatever way we can get this to the public, I think helps us,” he said.
