Cary is currently under a Stay-at-Home order in response to the COVID-19 pandemic. Most public-facing and staffed facilities are closed to the public, including Town Hall. All playgrounds are closed but greenways, parks, and park restrooms remain open at this time. Some services have been canceled or are limited. Learn more.

The Town of Cary is committed to being open, transparent and accessible, also known as "Sunshine" in government.

North Carolina has two Sunshine Laws to promote transparency in government: the Open Meetings Law and the Public Records Law. These laws give the public the right to attend meetings and to access documents deemed a public record.

To raise Cary citizens' awareness of their rights under Sunshine laws, the Town has information on its website with information on how to access public records and a calendar that displays Town meetings.

Other information includes:

  • Public records policy: On February 8, 2007, the Town of Cary became one of the first local governments in North Carolina to adopt a comprehensive public records policy that articulates specifically how the Town will support Sunshine laws. 
  • Agendas & Minutes: Since 1997, the Town has posted Council meeting materials on the Web for everyone to access anytime.
  • Sunshine Week: The Town of Cary celebrates national Sunshine Week each year in March. Sunshine Week is a national initiative to promote the importance of open government and freedom of information.
