Bill would put public notices online (02/02/2014)
By Chris Rogers

If new bills introduced at the state capitol succeed, those without internet access may be ignored by local government meeting notices. Bills in the Minnesota House of Representatives and Senate would eliminate requirements that local governments publish meeting notices in local newspapers, instead allowing the publishing of notices exclusively online.

The Winona County Board is being asked to vote on a resolution supporting the bills at its Tuesday morning meeting.

Supporters of the bills argue that internet postings are more affordable and more convenient for those with access. However, not all citizens are online.

The resolution is included in the board’s consent agenda, meaning that commissioners will need to specifically ask for it to pulled from the consent agenda or approve it en masse with other routine business.

The County Board will meet at 9 a.m. on Tuesday, February 5, at the Winona County Government Center.
