Maybe Lowndes County could also welcome tourists instead of using
them as a ticketing revenue stream
that’s costing us $200,000 to process.
And maybe both Lowndes County and Valdosta could put their
agenda packets online like tiny
(population 3,067) Tybee Island does.
Tybee Island has decided that the National Security Agency isn’t a model worth following. On Monday, The coastal city’s council retracted its approval of a pair of license plate scanners intended to greet tourists. From
the Savannah Morning News:
Citing mostly negative feedback from the public and concerns over how the information from the scanners would translate to a tourism study being conducted by a local professor, the council instead voted to purchase a higher quality model of the current hose-like vehicle counter the city has stretched over U.S. 80.
Lee County has
28,575 people; Lowndes has
111,885 (July 2011).
Yet tiny Lee does what mighty Lowndes doesn’t:
it puts its agenda packets online.
I’d bet it doesn’t even waste county resources putting them
into a fancy printed binder.
When will Lowndes County move into the 21st century?
