We would like to get all of our City Council meeting minutes online with searchable access for citizens.   Currently we have some records on microfilm, some in professionally bound books and others in hard copy and on computer.  Does your locality have this set up and if so, would you share some details?   Who was the vendor?  Did you transfer any microfilm?  Some of our minutes date from 1879 and are handwritten --any experience with digitizing handwritten documents?  Are you pleased with the quality and searchability?  Currently I am working with Municipal Code Corp and would appreciate any guidance you would be willing to provide.

If you circulate a draft copy of your agenda, before the final copy and board materials are attached, who do you circulate the draft agenda to?  The Board and staff or everyone on your distribution list? Any insight would be helpful.Thanks!

Here's a question from Diane of King and Queen County:

I would like to find out from the Clerks how they handle Resolutions passed by their Boards.  If they use Municode, are they submitted like approved Ordinances.


Please comment below and respond to her question! Thanks!
