Doing the grunt work
If you're reading this, you're probably accustomed to rapid connectivity and technological ease-of-use issues. Likewise, Web logs aren't typically the hangout of the uninvolved.
The Floyd County Council seems determined to bring county government in line with the technological growth seen in the commercial sphere and among the most progressive communities. Is there any doubt that technology creates new opportunities for communication while keeping the cost of service delivery manageable?
The council will address such questions this week during a work session at the City-County Building's main assembly room. It's not a forum for the public to speak, but I'm certain the public would be welcome to observe. The tentative schedule says 5:30 p.m. on Thursday (Feb. 3).
Remember, this is a working session for the council to discuss needs and solutions, so if you plan to go, observe and report back. Often, it is these sessions where the real work gets done, so drop by, let the council know you have an interest in the government/technology nexus, but let them do their work.
