The Illinois Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) provides public access to government documents and records. The new Illinois FOIA notes that it is “the public policy of the State of Illinois that all persons are entitled to full and complete information regarding the affairs of government and the official acts and policies of those who represent them as public officials and public employees consistent with the terms of this Act. Such access is necessary to enable the people to fulfill their duties of discussing public issues fully and freely, making informed political judgments and monitoring government to ensure that it is being conducted in the public interest.”

The Illinois Attorney General office website provides details about the act.

Reed Township Mosquito Abatement District is subject to the Illinois FOIA.

Freedom of Information Act requests should be made to Mr. Joe Cosgrove, FOIA Officer, Reed Township Mosquito Abatement District P.O. Box 227 Braidwood Illinois, 60408.
