The Open Public Records Act became effective on July 7, 2002. It amended the prior Right to Know Law. Under the Open Public Records Act (OPRA), members of the public may have access to public records held by the Mt. Laurel Township MUA.

ball icon   Information on OPRA

The underlying purpose of OPRA is to provide that government records, with certain exceptions, be available for public inspection and copying. Not all records are disclosable under OPRA. Exceptions to public accessibility are based on such principles as: a reasonable expectation of privacy by citizens regarding records in the possession of a public agency; public safety concerns; and the need to foster unrestrained discussion and consideration of issues inside public agencies. The State of New Jersey established the Government Records Council to assist in disseminating information about OPRA. For more information on your right to obtain records under OPRA go to its web site at http://www.nj.gov/grc.

You may also contact the council by phone at its toll free information line: 866-850-0511, or by mail to: Government Records Council, P. O. Box 819, Trenton, NJ 08625.
