Why Public Notice Matter?
Public notices play a vital role in keeping citizens informed, governments accountable, and the exercise of statutory and judicial powers out in the open. Missouri law requires governments as well as others acting under legal or court authority to publish notice to the public before taking certain actions. State and local governments must publish notices before they hold certain hearings, rezone neighborhoods, award certain public contracts, and change ballot language. Similarly, attorneys, trustees, and other private citizens must first notify the public before auctioning a house at foreclosure, ending a marriage, authenticating a will, or changing a name. These are just a few examples. Collectively, these notices and others like them alert individuals to actions that will affect their legal rights. They open a window on the use of government power and the spending of public money. Ultimately, they inform citizens of what's going on in the community, including the when and the where and how to get involved.
