Below are links to each LAKE video of yesterday morning’s Work Session, with a few notes,
followed by a LAKE video playlist.

They published no agenda for their recent planning session,
and today their website is down before their 8:30 AM Work Session,
so if there’s an agenda on it, nobody can see it.
Gretchen is going there anyway, to see if they are doing anything.
We can’t wait on someone else to do something, we are going to have to move forward.
So far this forward motion is hard to see.
Investigative reporting costs money, for open records requests, copying, web hosting, gasoline, and cameras, and with sufficient funds we can pay students to do further research. You can donate to LAKE today!
It’s great that the Lowndes County Comissioner for District 2
is reporting about a highway in his district,
but why isn’t the county reporting it on its own facebook page,
website, twitter account, etc.?
While the county doesn’t have facebook account (why not?) it does
have those other things and there’s nothing on them about
this news: Continue reading →
As 8:00 came there was apparently not a quorum, so calls went out to
members to see if one more could be attacted. At 8:15 it was
clear that there would be no additional members coming so no formal
meeting was held, no votes were taken but an informal review of the
agenda was performed:
I sure don’t miss the old hexagon menu, the new menu is up top and
usable before they waste a bunch of space with stock photos.

While Allan Ricketts does have a Linkedin profile,
it’s not very fleshed out and they don’t link to it.
Lots of interesting detail; room for improvement in marketing and high level presentation: Valdosta-Lowndes Prospector website.
S. Meghan Duke gave a lengthy presentation of the GIS website Valdosta-Lowndes Prospector, at the 19 June 2012 VLCIA meeting. Chairman Roy Copeland wanted to know (5:21) whether it showed at the top the industrial parks VLCIA has spent so much time and effort developing, maybe by age, size, in alphabetical order? She indicated you could do all those things, but they didn’t necessarily crop up without somebody selecting filters that caused them to crop up. However they are featured properties, and whenever they are updated, updates show up. Project Manager Allan Ricketts said he’d heard good reactions so far. Executive Director Andrea Schruijer said they could feature parks or whatever through facebook and twitter, too. And yes, they have a floodplain overlay, among many other overlays.
The approved minutes of all city or town council meetings must be
posted on the city’s website within two working days of their
approval, A.R.S. § 38-431.01(E)(2) . In no event should minutes be
withheld from the public pending approval. Minutes must be reduced
to a form that is readily accessible to the public. See A.R.S. §
38-431.01(D). A public body of a city or a town with a population
exceeding 2,500 people shall, within three working days after any
meeting, post on their website a statement showing legal actions
taken by the public body or any recordings made during the meeting.
A.R.S. § 38-431.01(E)(1). Posted statements and recordings shall
remain accessible on the website for at least one year after the
meeting. Id.§ (J). In addition, any recordings and minutes are
public records subject to record retention requirements.
No barn door exception for “if” the municipality has a website.
Cities over 2,500 population also have to post recordings
if they made them.
Expand all that to counties and appointed boards and authorities,
add it to Georgia’s sunshine laws, and then we’ll be solar cooking!
