Atlantic Beach Resident Prompts Public Records Compliance Changes
As part of a settlement agreement with Atlantic Beach resident Paul Curry, town officials must make public records available to the public to inspect and copy with a minimum delay, and to justify any money charged for Freedom of Information Act requests. Also among the agreed changes, the town must also post in Town Hall a copy of the state FOIA and the Public Officials' Guide to Compliance with South Carolina's Freedom of Information Act. The town must also pay $5,000 in Curry's legal fees.
