Guide to Public Notices Required by MO Statutes

Missouri newspapers provide the citizens and the communities they serve with important information on topics ranging from abandoned property to zoological districts. Individuals, businesses and governmental entities often are required by law to publish certain information in newspapers qualified by statute to publish public notices.

It is important that the newspaper's staff members are familiar with the requirements outlined by state law. The Missouri Press Association provides an index which will help connect the person or group with the relevant state statute.

Once you know the statute number that affects the particular publication requirement, you can go to www.moga.mo.gov/ to find the specific wording and requirements of the law. Once there, enter the statute you are searching for in the search form and click on SEARCH.

If you have any questions about this guide, please contact the Missouri Press Association.
