Website evaluation

Main article: Evaluation of New Jersey city websites

The good

  • Agendas are available .[1]
  • Building permit forms are available on the website.[2] There is a database of information on local ordinances and codes.[3]
  • Provides names of Mayor and Council, however no email contact.[4]
  • Provides tax assessments but does not explain how rates are determined.[5]


The bad

  • Could not find resent approved minutes from council meeting!
  • Why doesn't Atlantic City put meetings on internet?
  • No email contact for your elected officials. They should be accessible to citizens via email.
  • Information is not available for audits. Audits should indicate to citizens how well town is being financially managed.
  • Lobbying information and ethics is not noted
  • There is no checkbook register available on this website
  • There is not information or database on awarded contract, which should include teachers, firemen and police, etc on this website.
  • There is no 2010 or 2011 budget on the website.
  • There is no information on how to get public records from city posted on website.
  • There is no information on the website on how the city calculates your taxes. As a citizen you should know these rules and formulas.
