Right to Know Law

"Ensuring open and honest government is a bedrock principle of democracy. It can only be attained through the unfettered exchange of information between citizens and their government. A citizen’s right-to-know, sometimes known as freedom of information, fosters accountability, prevents abuses of power and promotes trust in government. Pennsylvania has codified this important right to access government records in Act 3 of 2008, called the Right-to-Know law."

Township Manager Theresa Eberly is the Open Records Officer for the Township and Lt. Leroy L. Hippensteel, II is the Open Records Officer for the Police Department, as appointed by the Silver Spring Township Board of Supervisors.
