A Note About Emails

Local governments in Wake County, including the Town of Wake Forest, now have the authority to deny requests for copies of subscriber email lists. Passed by the North Carolina General Assembly in 2010, House Bill 1921 states that email address lists are open to public inspection for those who want to come to Town Hall to see them but are no longer required to be provided.

The law also states that governments may only use the lists for the purpose for which the citizen subscribed to them or for emergency communications.
