Pennsylvania's Right-To-Know law went into effect January 1, 2009. The law established an Office of Open Records at the state level and required each government agency to appoint an Open Records Officer and to adopt an Open Records Policy.

All requests for public records must be submitted in writing and on a form provided by the Borough, or on a form provided by the State Office of Open Records. The Borough Open Records Officer must respond to the requester within five (5) business days from the date of receipt of the written request. If the request is being reviewed, the Borough must notify the requester in writing and include the reason for the review and the expected response date, which must be within thirty (30) days of the notice of review.

The Borough has appointed the Borough Manager as the Open Records Officer.
