About the Public Square

Official Photo of Governor Jeff Colyer, MDWelcome to Public Square of Kansas. Dedicated to the promise of open government, Public Square provides the public with access to meeting notices for state agencies, boards and commissions. Established by Executive Order 18-08 by Gov. Jeff Colyer, M.D., the site provides timely notification of meetings, subject of the meeting, location, point of contact and other pertinent documents.

“In my travels around the state, I’ve talked to many Kansans, who express their desire for more sunlight on government dealings. Transparency is the key to better accountability and accountability is the key to real results. This executive order is a great first step towards increasing transparency and renewing public confidence in their government.”

The site is maintained by the Department of Administration, Office of Public Affairs. Questions about the site can be directed to info-publicsquare@ks.gov.
