BILL NUMBER: S5504 TITLE OF BILL : An act to amend the town law, in relation to requiring an electronic version of a town clerk's sign-board on a town website PURPOSE OR GENERAL IDEA OF BILL : To increase resident knowledge about all town actions that require an official legal notice. SUMMARY OF SPECIFIC PROVISIONS : This bill amends § 30(6) of the town law to require that in any town that maintains a website, an electronic version of the town clerk's signboard shall be maintained. JUSTIFICATION : Most town residents get their information about town government and possible town actions or events from the internet rather than physically going to town hall to look at notices. By creating an electronic version of the town's sign-board, this bill enables residents to have quick and easy access to town notices, allowing them to be better informed citizens.
