Editorial: Information Requests, Distinction Between Council Members and Citizens

verum apparatus logo fiverr

On April 7, 2014, the Riverside City Council passed a resolution that

authorizes an administrative policy concerning individual council members request for information. Individual requests can be time consuming and if the subject matter is not something the remainder of the Council is interested in or feel it is not necessary, then it becomes more like a citizen’s request. This policy provides that council person make a motion for information and the entire council would then vote. (Administrator notes)

All requests for information shall be made during City Council meetings by a motion and voted upon by the council. Individual council persons can have their requests added to the agenda or make a motion during council comments section of the agenda, which will include the ability to discuss and take action.” (Policy Number: ADM 42104-2)

Issue was raised that this is in violation of Iowa Code Chapter 22. So, on April 10, 2014, I asked the Iowa Freedom of Information Board if it is legal for a council have final say of what public information is released to citizens and council members. Kathleen Richardson of the IFIB replied that:

 At the very least, council members have the same rights as other citizens to access government information (and have even more rights to have access to confidential information in some circumstances). If a council member (or any other person) is requesting access to information that he or she is legally entitled to under the Iowa public records law, the request cannot be denied.

That same day, I filed a formal complaint with the Iowa Public Information Board (IPIB). I provided the same information and added in the description of the alleged violation that the policy hinders council people from fulfilling their responsibilities in that city council should not have a say in what public information should be public. I called back about a week later to check in. Margaret E. Johnson, JD Deputy Director IPIB  said that the Administrative policy that was approved sets forth policies for obtaining information to be used for the city council for city council procedures and it does not restricting individual citizen abilities to get information. She added that the IPIB has no jurisdiction outside chapter 22. I respect the Board’s decision, but I don’t remember it described as such at the council meeting.

Now, my deduction  from IPIB’s opinion, given the Board’s distinction between citizen and council requests for information,  is that it seems that council members and citizens don’t have the same rights to information. .I am interested to hear any thoughts any of you might have on this. Especially given the fact that Rogerson said at that same meeting that he would not perform any such research, even for citizens.
