Mountz v. Columbia Borough

The Pennsylvania Commonwealth Court revisited the Right-to-Know laws. The requestor sought an environmental report conducted at a municipality’s request shortly after that municipality contracted to acquire a tract of land. The municipality voided the contract once it received the final reports. The Court agreed with the Office of Open Records that environmental reviews for potential real estate acquisitions that do not result in a purchase are exempt from disclosure under Section 708(b)(22)(i)(A) of the Right-to-Know Law.
