Official records dropped significantly.  It’s the account for the supplements in the City Code book distributed to departments.  Not going to give them the copies.  Were going to give discs, however, not now.  City Council will be given electronically.

Karen Goldner – code is updated on the website?  Copies will be done in house.  Updated quarterly on-line.

Liz – Postage – for parking notices sent every 6-7 weeks.  Also Council mail.  Legal notices has gone up – state statute mandates this.  Cost has gone up.

Jim Haley is working on something.  New program for ordinance management.  Application extender.  Retreival, created just for the City.  City Utilities and several County offices are using it.  Document Management System.
