Torrington area officials get update on FOI law

“For democracy to work, people need to know what’s going on,” Freedom of Information Commission Public Education Officer Thomas Hennick said Tuesday at a meeting in Torrington City Hall.
Hennick held a workshop with city department heads, commission members and area citizens to educate them about meeting laws and open records.
Municipalities, boards and commissions should think of everything they do in terms of being open and accessible to the public, he said.
