Learn about public records at Roseville Library

On Wednesday, Sept. 12, St. Paul-based nonprofit Public Record Media will host a Freedom of Information workshop at the Roseville Library in the community room from 7 to 8:30 p.m.

The workshop will explore how members of the public can use Minnesota’s Data Practices Act to obtain government records on a wide range of issues, from property records, to police reports, to school board plans and government budgets. The presentation will feature comments by Rich Neumeister, a longtime record requester and open government advocate. An introduction will be given by Matt Ehling, PRM’s executive director.

The event is free and open to the public. Participants are encouraged to bring ideas for their own public record requests. RSVPs are encouraged by calling 651-556-1381.

Public Record Media conducts public record-centered publication, legal work and education. It’s been in the news recently in connection with its open records lawsuit against the Minnesota Department of Employment and Economic Development, seeking the State of Minnesota’s Amazon headquarters bid. 

For more information call 651-556-1381. The library is located at 2180 Hamline Ave. N. in Roseville.
