Sarasota: Expanding the Expectations of Open Government

From Connecting Government Blog:

The City of Sarasota, FL. implemented Granicus solutions six years ago for the purpose of putting all of the City Commission meetings, from Regular to Special and Workshops, online and accessible to the public via the Internet.

Sunshine laws in Florida are some of the most open in the country, and so, in keeping with the laws’ philosophy, the Office of the City Auditor and Clerk has always worked to provide all it can to the citizens.
