SIX roadshows will be held in the coming weeks to educate Logan residents about the right to information procedure.

RTI requests allow ordinary citizens to access council information that is in the public interest.

Council administrator Tamara O'Shea said Logan was dedicated to fostering openness and transparency, and Right to Information was a central part of council's commitment to delivering accountable government.

RTI requests allow ordinary citizens to access council information that is in the public interest.

"I believe that open and accountable governments produce the best outcomes for people," Ms O'Shea said.

"However, for some people the process can be confusing which is why council is hitting the road to bring RTI to you."

She said RTI was a fundamental right in an open, democratic society.

The 10th anniversary of current RTI legislation will be celebrated in Queensland on Saturday, September 28.
