MOSINEE, Wis. (WSAU) -- Mosinee city officials are putting some new technology to good use.
City council members and department heads have all received new Microsoft tablets to cut down on the amount of paper documents the city distributes. City clerk Bruce Jamroz says it's a major improvement. "We're saving staff time, we're making our information more available to our citizens, it's a win win for everybody."
The city has also partnered with the communications company IQM2 to host city council meetings online. The new software will allow viewers to catch up on meetings they might have missed. Jamroz says the upgrade makes it easier than ever to follow along with city meetings. "This new software we have allows us to combine our agendas and meeting packets with the video, so you can click right on the meeting packet and it will take you to that point in the video."
Jamroz says Mosinee is committed to open government, and that this is a part of that. "I think it's very important knows what we're doing with their tax dollars, and that we're trying to do the best that we can to make their tax dollar go as far as it can."
