City taking steps toward electronic record keeping
Monday, December 3, 2012
Jefferson City is moving forward with a project to switch to an electronic record keeping system, hoping to make city information more available to the general public.
Last year, the City Council began exploring the possibilities of moving to a paperless system, including electronic council agendas and an electronic filing system for city records. Last summer, council members and department directors received iPads and council agendas, as well as a number of council committees, have moved to a paperless system.
On Tuesday, the City Council is expected to approve an upgrade to the city’s document management software that will allow for an expanded system of electronic record keeping.
