04 Sep County Government Accessibility
Our courthouse needs to be open Monday to Friday again. Closing on Mondays is an experiment that needs to end.
County government needs to have all employees, elected officials, and board members using county provided email and communication methods. Currently we have a hodge podge network of personal accounts, and a complete lack of standards for elected officials and volunteer board members.
County departments need to use scanners to make public documents available in electronic form. Charging citizens $1 a page is a relic of the last century. Public documents should be public. They should be able to be requested electronically, and provided electronically. Additionally, many requests could be handled remotely, not requiring citizens to actually come into a government office.
