The Town of Wake Forest is committed to being open, transparent and accessible.
North Carolina has two Sunshine Laws to promote transparency in government: the Open Meetings Law and the Public Records Law. These laws give the public the right to attend meetings and to access documents deemed a public record.
To raise Wake Forest citizens' awareness of their rights under Sunshine laws, the town provides information on its website concerning how to access and review public records and a calendar that displays town meetings. The town has also unveiled an open data portal designed to make data more easily accessible.
