Right To Know

Need to request information? All Right-to-Know Law (“RTKL”) requests must be addressed to the Right-to-Know Officer. Please see below for contact information.


All Right-to-Know Law (“RTKL”) requests must be addressed to the Right-to-Know Officer (Open Records), as follows:

West Pennsboro Township - Myra Barrick
2150 Newville Road
Carlisle, PA 17015

Telephone: 717-243-8220 x103

Requests can be submitted by mail; facsimile: (717) 243-1592; in person or by e-mail which allows for a requestor to submit a request electronically.

A request should identify or describe the records sought with sufficient specificity to enable the Right-to-Know Officer to ascertain which records are being requested and shall include the name and mailing address to which a response should be addressed. You are not required to state a reason for making a request for records.

While verbal requests may be fulfilled, the requester cannot pursue the relief and remedies provided under the RTKL unless the request is in writing. The RTKL allows five (5) business days for a response to be provided to a requestor and a verbal request will not expedite a response by the Right-to-Know Officer.

Make sure when you file a request, you are seeking records and not asking for legal advice, opinions or guidance. The RTKL requires only the release of public records and allows for the charge of reasonable fees including, but not limited to, copying and postage.
