How to Submit a Right-to-Know Request to the Borough of New Morgan

All RTKL requests for records must be in writing. Each request must identify or describe the records sought with sufficient specificity to enable New Morgan Borough to ascertain which records are being requested. Each request must also provide a name and address to which the response will be directed.

Please use of the following forms below in order to submit your RTK request.

Pennsylvania Office of Open Records - Right-to-Know Uniform Request Form

All requests must be addressed to the Agency Open Records Officer, as follows:

Requests may be sent to the RTKL Office via mail, fax, or in person during regular business hours of 8:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m., Monday through Thursday (except holidays and official office closings).  The office is closed on Fridays.

  If a written request for records is granted, the following fees will be charged to the requester:

  • $0.25 per page for duplication;

  • $2.00 per record certification;

  • Actual costs for postage, facsimile or other media, and for duplication of specialized records

RTKL fees for duplication are established by the Office of Open Records. As expressly provided by 65 P.S. §67.1307(g), the Agency is authorized to charge requester reasonable fees for necessarily incurred costs. The Agency will determine and charge such fees on a case by case basis. 

Requester must pay all applicable RTKL fees before access to requested records is provided. Should New Morgan Borough determine that applicable fees are projected to exceed $100.00, the requester will be required to prepay the fees before the request is processed. All fees must be paid by certified check, bank check, or money order made payable to the “New Morgan Borough.”
