It is the policy of the Missouri Department of Transportation (MoDOT) to comply with the provisions of Chapter 610 of the Revised Statutes of Missouri (RSMo), as amended, the Missouri Public Records (Sunshine) law. MoDOT recognizes that it is the public policy of the State of Missouri that all meetings, records, etc., of public governmental bodies are open to public inspection except those that the statues allow to be closed (Section 610.021 RSMo). MoDOT also recognizes that the law regarding access to such meetings and records is to be liberally construed.
This policy is adopted by MoDOT pursuant to Section 610.028.2 RSMo, as amended. MoDOT has appointed the Secretary to the Commission as the custodian of such records as required by Section 610.023, as amended.
MoDOT hereby adopts and implements this Public Records Policy and Procedure to respond to requests for access to such records. The adoption of this policy and procedure repeals and replaces all earlier policies and/or procedures.
