Ipads for Councillors
I just had to respond the the article in this week's Eastern Courier. The cost of the ipads that Councillors will use will be about $15,000. However, they seemed a little doubtful about the savings. The report to Council detailed savings of up the $57,000 per year, these savings found in not having to print agendas (paper), reduced courier deliveries and staff labor costs in printing and collating the agendas. This seems like a worthwhile exercise to me.
