Some of what I’ve had to say in the past

Morris: “Go to a meeting and ask them how they voted.”

One of my long-standing complaints. In this technological age, there is no good reason why every vote of Council is not a recorded vote, and why that information should not be readily accessible on the city web site.

re “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?
