Long Island Gets a ‘C’ in First-Ever Local Government Open Records...

It’s easier to acquire documents listing Nassau and Suffolk county authorities’ secret investigative files than obtain records detailing taxpayer-funded workers’ salaries in the villages of Island Park, Manorhaven or Port Jefferson.
