Local Government Transparency


The Borough of Chambersburg is committed to transparency in Local Government. Transparent governance means that government officials act openly, with citizens’ knowledge of the decisions the officials are making. Availability of information on government policies and actions, a clear sense of organizational responsibility, and an assurance that governments are efficiently administered and free of systemic waste are important components of transparent governance. Finally, we are committed to providing the public with as much information as possible. We are proud of our efforts, especially in proportion to other Pennsylvania municipalities.
