COLUMBIA — Most government records are open to the public at no charge. These records give citizens the opportunity to find out what’s going on, how their elected officials are spending tax dollars, how the various departments within a governmental entity work and other valuable information needed to make strong decisions for the future. Each week, the Missourian highlights a government record that is available to the public. For a complete list of Show Me the Records, go to
