Public notices provide citizens with important information about how government performs its work. Virginia’s public notice laws require government, businesses and some individuals to give notice to the public when critically important actions are about to be taken – the foreclosure of a home, passage of a local ordinance, construction of a new highway, the adoption of a child – and so on. Newspapers (print and digital) provide a reliable, accessible way to reach the public.
A new law went into effect on July 1, 2019 that changed the requirements for newspapers that publish public notices and how they publish them. To read the key changes click here. To read the full law click here.
