Addison Receives 'A' Grade From Local Newspaper
During Sunshine Week

The Village of Addison scored an "A" Grade from Suburban Life Publications, which publishes the Addison Press, in their test of local governments' responsiveness to requests for public documents.  The survey was conducted as part of "Sunshine Week," led by the American Society of Newspaper Editors during the third week of March, it is intended to increase awareness about the public's right to know.

The newspaper surveyed 60 municipalities, requesting a copy of their December 2007 electric bill.  The newspaper noted: "Addison was among the first governments to respond, mailing out the information well within the seven-day allotment."
