Eye On Boise

Looking at what’s a public record, what’s open, what’s not under Idaho law…

I’ll be hitting the road next week for four IDOG open government seminars in the Wood River Valley, the Magic Valley and Eastern Idaho, designed to educate local government officials, reporters and the public on what is covered – and what is not – by Idaho’s two key open government laws, the Idaho Open Meeting Law and the Idaho Public Records Law. These workshops, led by Idaho Attorney General Lawrence Wasden and coordinated by IDOG, Idahoans for Openness in Government (of which I’m president and a co-founder), have been held in locations across the state since 2004; most recently, three were held last winter in the Treasure Valley, and next year, more are planned for North Idaho.

If you’re anywhere near Hailey (Monday evening), Twin Falls (Tuesday evening), Fort Hall (Wednesday evening) or Rexburg (Thursday evening) next week, please consider attending! All the sessions will start at 6 p.m. These sessions are recommended by the Office of the Attorney General, the Association of Idaho Cities, the Idaho Association of Counties and the Idaho Press Club. They are free and include refreshments; because space is limited, attendees are asked to RSVP; you can see all the details here.
