In accordance with the Pennsylvania Right-to-Know Law ("RTKL"), 65 P.S. §§ 67.101 et seq., and subject to exceptions in that law, records of the Reading Downtown Improvement District (RDIDA) are available for inspection or duplication upon request.

Requests for inspection and/or duplication are to be submitted in writing (verbal requests do not have the remedies afforded by the RTKL), to the attention of:

Open Records Officer
Reading Downtown Improvement District

Requests via e-mail should be sent to: andrew.keuscher@downtownreading.com
You can obtain a RTKL request form by clicking here.

Completed requests can be sent to either address above or delivered in person to the authority’s office.

RTKL requests are to be for records and specific enough so that RDIDA can understand what is sought (and in what time frame). In addition to providing a name and mailing or e-mail address, please provide a phone number so that RDIDA can contact you for any clarification or questions. RDIDA will reply to your request in the manner required by the Act.

Duplication fees are $0.25 per page for single-sided copies, in accordance with the fee structure of the Pennsylvania Office of Open Records. Additional fees may apply. In accordance with the RTKL, RDIDA will require prepayment of estimated fees, by money order or check, associated with complying with the request if the fees are expected to exceed $100. Payment for records is to be received before records are produced, and service and attorney fees will be applied to all checks for insufficient funds.
