Public Notice Alert: Best Practice #6: Newspaper Website/ Internet–Only Notices—Miscellaneous Issues
As indicated previously, FPA is circulating best internal practices that address several areas in the new public notice bill (HB 35). One provision of the new law allows government agencies to publish certain notices solely in the newspaper website of any “newspaper in the county to which the notice pertains” and on FPA’s statewide website at floridapublicnotices.com. Further, the new law requires FPA to track how frequently this internet-only notice option is being used by government agencies. Best Practice #6 addresses questions that have arisen from both government agencies that plan to use the new option and from members who will report information to FPA regarding use of the option.
BP #6 will be posted at FPA’s Public Notice Resource page.
