The City of Mansfield abides by the Louisiana Public Records Act, also known as Louisiana's Sunshine Law, which was enacted by the state's legislature in 1940.
In 1974, Louisiana adopted a new State Constitution which included a provision establishing that idea that
public documents are presumed to be open for public inspection. The 1974 constitution says,
"No person shall be denied the right to . . . examine public documents except in cases established by law."

The City Clerk prepares the documentation for the meetings and maintains all City Council records.
