The FOGWatch Roadshow was extended to include South Florida. Originally our in-person-audit of public agencies was intended to include various agencies between Lakeland and Jacksonville. The results of that trip were so interesting we decided to extend the audit to include agencies between Jacksonville and Miami. I’ll be posting more details about the Roadshow in the next few days.
We found some outstanding examples of folks who obviously believe in open government and who take seriously their obligations under Florida’s Public Records Act. I’ll be specific about some of the most outstanding agencies.
Unfortunately, the vast majority of state and local agencies egregiously violated the law. I’ll be very specific about some of the worst violators in upcoming blog posts. It’s obvious that there still a lot of work to be done.
