Website evaluation

The good

  • County Commissioners are listed with full contact information.[1]

The bad

  • The website says that County Commissioners serve six-year partisan terms, but there is no information on the party affiliation of the current County Commissioners or on the date of the next election.[2]
  • The names of the appointed board members for the different county boards are posted, along with the date of each appointee's term expiration, but there is no contact information for these officials.[3]
  • There is no information on local tax rates, budgets, audits, contracts, lobbying, or filing an public records request.
  • There is no search function on the website, and information can be difficult to find.
