What is the Sparks City Attorney’s policy concerning the release of public records?

Sparks City Attorney Chet Adams has consistently applied a liberal interpretation of Nevada’s Public Records law to ensure that citizens are provided with all legally accessible information concerning Sparks government. Mr. Adams was once publically threatened with a Grand Jury investigation because of his commitment to openness when he provided public documents of a politically sensitive nature. Mr. Adams was ultimately acknowledged as having done the right thing in bringing sunshine into government. The Sparks City Attorney must also be sensitive to the personal privacy interests of victims and witnesses to crime, as well as the confidentiality of city employees and the criminal justice system in regards to ongoing criminal investigations. Simply put, the Sparks City Attorney is committed to public awareness, openness and government accountability.
