Delaware Attorney General: Milford Schools Violated FOIA

Posted: 07/18/2017 11:56:00 -04:00 Updated:

MILFORD, Del. (AP)- Delaware's attorney general has ruled that a local school board violated the Freedom of Information Act.

State Attorney General Matt Denn's office ruled the Milford School Board violated FOIA when it failed to include a vote for the 2017 tax rate on its original June 2016 meeting agenda.

According to an AG opinion on the case, local resident Gloria Markowitz filed a complaint against the district when her taxes rose to $519 instead of the $280 she expected. Markowitz learned only after receiving her bill that the Milford School Board had voted to increase taxes last year.

Milford schools Superintendent Kevin Dickerson said in a statement the FOIA violation was due to an internal mistake that was fixed by posting an agenda addendum.
