Common Council to get Ipads

Councilman Robert Santangelo demonstrates what an ipad is and how the interwebs works.
Common Council members will be issued ipads to receive meeting minutes and agendas on. Cost per year is $20,000 for the program. Meetings will be streamed live on the internet. The Granicus software will cost $118,000 to implement and will include digital archiving. The Granicus system for the ipad is meant to save money, and  offset the cost of paper copies and the delivery of council materials by a police officer as per charter rules. No word if the ipads will have tracking software, keystroke loggers, or cameras to spy on council members in their homes, but tin-foil hat wearing is encouraged.


  1. I wish to get across my affection for your kindness giving support to persons who must have help with in this theme.

    me to realize their goals. Your personal warm and friendly tips and hints signifies a
    whole lot a person like me and substantially more to my mates.

  2. My question is why this is costing the taxpayer so much when we have a crack IT team with the city. You would think for all we pay them that this could be done for have the cost.

    The IPAD's is suppose to make it easier, but my guess it will confuse more council people then help.

  3. If they want to get it done anytime soon they have to contract it out. Have you ever had to rely on the IT team here? If you can find them when they are not on the golf course, you have to wait and even when they show up they are not very good.

    Kinda like alot of the municipal workers.

  4. An iPad for a tool-pad. Nice.

  5. How do people like Bob get on the council? I just don't get it? Has he done anything good?
