Freedom of Information
Freedom of Information gives the public a right to access government documents, subject to some limitations. In Western Australia, under the Freedom of Information Act 1992 (FOI Act), the right applies to local governments, including the City of Perth. Documents available under the FOI Act include paper records, plans and drawings, photographs, tape recordings, films, videotapes, or information stored in a computerised form.
