These rules provide information to persons wishing to request access to public records of ELUHO and the boards within ELUHO, and also establish processes for both requestors and ELUHO employees that are designed to best assist members of the public in obtaining access to public records. In carrying out its responsibilities under the act, ELUHO will be guided by the provisions of the act describing its purposes and interpretation. The act and these rules will be interpreted in favor of disclosure.
