Recorded Council Votes


My submission to the London Free Press:

With respect to the article in today’s LFP “Council comments, grades, don’t add up” (Mary Zelinski; London Free Press “Letters”; 2002/11/21).

I agree that the voting record of council members should be published. It should be available on the city’s web site.

Can somebody tell me, with the advances that have been made in technology, why isn’t every Council vote a recorded vote? And why aren’t the minutes of meetings that are posted on the city’s web site in HTML format, and hyperlinked, so that citizens can easily find the information that they’re interested in? Instead of a proprietary PDF file format that stymies information searches?
