The City’s site was recognized for having its board and committee agendas, committee minutes, fiscal year budgetary information, bylaws, codes, ordinances and other pertinent data all posted online.
The Mayor thanked City Information Technology Director Pamela Carr and City Clerk Margaret Toomey for their efforts in obtaining this recognition.
Common Cause Massachusetts is a nonpartisan, nonprofit, government watchdog, dedicated to citizen participation in an open, honest, and accountable government. An independent, member-supported organization, Common Cause has more than 200,000 members nationwide and 10,000 in Massachusetts.
