WHEREAS: The option to view all City-sponsored committee meeting minutes online is increasingly in demand for residents to remain civically engaged and informed on the proceedings of their municipal government; and
          
WHEREAS:

Minutes of some committee meetings are only available through a public records request through the Law Department for a fee; and

     

ORDERED:

Granting residents, property owners and the media the ability to view the minutes of City-sponsored committee meetings online such as the E-gov Committee, most of which are held during the day, is a key component to building on Cambridge's record of government transparency and accessibility; now therefore be it 
     

ORDERED:

That the City Manager be and hereby is requested to confer with the Law Department, the Information Technology Department and any other relevant departments to evaluate the feasibility of ensuring all city-sponsored committee meeting minutes are available online and report back to the City Council.
