Lumby embraces paperless agendas

Lumby council is going high-tech.

Within the next few weeks, the village will  move towards paperless agendas for all council and committee meetings.

“Moving to a paperless system is anticipated to result in a huge time-saving when it comes to creating meeting agendas,” said Tom Kadla, chief administrative officer.

“There will also be savings from less paper and related supplies consumed in creation of these agendas. We can pass these savings on to the taxpayer by investing time into other areas that align with council’s strategic direction.

The village has purchased an Agenda SE, which will publish agendas to councillor iPads.

Council members will be able to annotate and organize their agendas right on their tablet and receive instant updates if anything changes.

“The village can also upload digital agendas on to their website, providing the framework for increased citizen participation and a more open and transparent government,” said Scott Neufeld, with iCompass, the company providing the technology.
