NORWALK, Conn. — Sunshine Week is a national initiative spearheaded by the American Society of News Editors to educate the public about the importance of open government and the importance of access to public information and what it means for you and your community. A primary vehicle for access to public information is the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA).
This year, Sunshine Week is March 16-22.
Mayor Harry Rilling is scheduled to read a proclamation recognizing Sunshine Week at 3 p.m. Monday, March 17, in the Atrium of City Hall. Everyone is welcome to join the brief ceremony.
