Another example of the city government’s failure to design and maintain a Web site that is useful to the public:
There are six Citizens Planning Advisory Committees in the city.
They are formed of people from the more than 400 neighborhoods in the city and their purpose is to provide input to city officials.
Want to see what they are up to?
Go to this page, where it says you can view the minutes of CPAC meetings for the last 12 months.
All of the meetings are from 2003-2005.
Better luck next time.
The city’s pathetic Web site does contain some useful information. But a lot of useful information is missing and what is there can be difficult to find and understand.
This was pointed out by the Task Force on Open Government and the City Council is expected to take remedial action in the near future.
