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." 

   ~ Pennsylvania Office of Open Records

The Pennsylvania Right to Know Law was established to provide citizens of the Commonwealth the right to request, inspect and obtain copies of public records. Township Secretary, Willetta D. Huth, is the Open Records Officer for the Township and Chief Christopher Raubenstine is the Open Records Officer for the Police Department, as appointed by the Silver Spring Township Board of Supervisors.

For an official Right to Know request form, we ask that you provide as much specific detail as possible. Note that administrative copying fees apply for any printed materials obtained through your request. For Right to Know issues pertaining to an administrative matter, please email SST Info; for police matters, contact the Police Administrator
