I was looking for an old friend and stumble across this Village website that can serve as an example for all cities and nonprofits that have an obligation to have public meetings and a duty to communicate the agendas of these meetings as well as the minutes to interested parties, in a readily accessible, open, transparent format.
Here, with Bentleyville, it's simple: The agendas are in one column, and the minutes are in the next.
Minutes & Agendas
2009 Council Agendas 2009 Council Minutes
What's so difficult about this? Why can't everybody do it this way?
I also like the way they present themselves, down to the tagline:
Village of Bentleyville
Serve, Preserve, Conserve
Simplicity. Basics. There's a premium for it, and Bentleyville's a prime example.
