Open government is the governing philosophy which states that citizens have the right to access the documents and proceedings of the government to allow for effective public oversight. The City of Asheville wholly supports this concept and seeks to actively engage the community in our governmental processes. The City recognizes transparency is important to good government and stands behind its record of providing access to public records.
