Website evaluation

The good

  • There is a listing of county commissioners and their contact information.[1]
  • There is an archive of meeting minutes, agendas and places.[2]
  • Personalized property tax information can be found online.[3]

The bad

  • No listing the county audits, credit card receipts, or posting on the checkbook register.
  • While there is a listing of county committee appointments, there is no way listed on how to contact them.[4]
  • Even though the 2008 budget is listed, there is only the past budget for 2006. It seems the coverage of finances for the county are sporadic at best.[5]
