Orleans County Recognizes National Sunshine Week

In recognition of National Sunshine Week, Orleans County Legislature Chairman Lynne Johnson today reminded residents of some of the ways they can access information related to county government.  Sunshine Week is being celebrated this week, in concurrence with National Freedom of Information Day on March 16, to highlight the importance of open, transparent government.

“As a county Legislature, we pride ourselves in trying to make government open to our residents and encouraging their active participation,” said Johnson.  “We also want to bring government to you through livestreaming our meetings and posting more information to social media.”

With that in mind, Johnson provided some useful links from Orleans County government.

“Technology has certainly opened up many paths for government to make information available to the public, but for those of us who prefer the traditional way to reach out, I remind you that you can contact any county department through our main phone number at 585-589-7000,” said Johnson.
