As Connecticut works to recover from the COVID-19 pandemic, the staff of the Freedom of Information Commission has begun returning to the Commission’s office on a limited basis.  However, the building continues to be closed to the general public.  During this time of reopening, a limited number of staff will work at the Commission’s office while others will continue to telework.   The Commission resumed its schedule of Regular Meetings on Wednesday, June 10, 2020.  Commission meetings will be conducted via telephone and teleconference until such time as restrictions allow a public meeting to be held at the Commission's offices.  Instructions for real-time public access to the Commission’s meetings will be published and included with each meeting agenda.   Additionally, a recording of each meeting will be posted on the Commission’s website.  Contested case hearings resumed via telephone the week of August 17, 2020. The Commission continues to accept appeals and engage in its ombudsman program.

The Commission's contested case hearing agendas and minutes are available using the links below. Minutes of contested cases are available by clicking on the corresponding link for each docket number listed on the web page of an agenda listed below.  Note:  If you are unable to find a link to minutes for a particular contested case hearing, please contact the Freedom of Information Commission at 860-566-5682 or TOLL-FREE (CT ONLY): (866) 374-3617, to verify whether a case has been rescheduled or withdrawn.
