City Meetings Going Paperless in Sulphur
If might be offered when you log onto your bank's website or when you are paying a credit card bill, but now the city government in Sulphur is doing it.
The city is going paperless, at least, in part.
Mayor Chris Duncan says the Sulphur City Council went paperless for the first time at a meeting last week, while the city's Land Use Commission has gone paperless for the last two meetings to test the process.
The city says in order to go paperless they bought six Dell Latitude 10 tablets from the administrations budget. Duncan says the tablets are only allowed to be used in meetings.
The tablets display the City Council's agenda, resolutions and ordinances.
The tablets take the place of more than a dozen binders that were in use before they purchased the technology to go paperless.
Duncan says they will likely save about one case of paper for each council meeting.
