Policy would discourage council members’ use of personal email accounts

From The News Tribune:

Whatcom County (WA) Council members are "highly discouraged" from using their personal email accounts for county business, under a new policy under consideration.

The council on Tuesday, Jan. 24, will consider approving the policy. Under state public records law, emails to and from council members are subject to public release – with some exceptions – whether they're written in a personal email account or council one.
