If your salary is paid by the public, the public has a right to know what they pay you.
That seems pretty straightforward. But Orchard Park might be the first local government in Western New York to make it quite so easy to find the information, as I wrote in my column today.
Should other municipalities and school districts follow Orchard Park's lead and make employee salary information widely and easily available? Or should that information only be provided when a person requests it?
