Website evaluation

The good

  • All county board members are listed along with the date on which on their term expires.[1]
  • The website includes contact information for all elected and administrative county officials.[2]

The bad

  • The website includes an agenda for the most recent County Commission meeting, but past meeting agendas are not archived and no meeting minutes have been made available.[3]
  • Very limited budget information. Expenditures are not itemized or compared to past budgets. Only a budget resolution is posted online, and not any actual copies of county budgets.[4]
  • No information on how to file an request for public records.
