I was looking around the net at other cities around us, Garden city has their city council meetings online. Westland does too, and Dearborn. The city of Dearborn has redone their website very nice, and they have a new service for their residents Called Nixie this is sign up to get alerts by cell phone, or email. Wonder if we will ever have something like this. I have to fill out a FOIA request to get copies of city council meetings, while cities around us are putting them up on their sites for everyone to look at. I feel very strongly that we should have accesses to every council meeting, why our city is not doing what others around us are? I have no idea.
Just so you know this service does not cost anything would not cost the city, if I’m reading it right.
Nixle’s Municipal Wire is the first identity-certified and secure communication service that allows local, county and state law enforcement and government agencies to connect with residents over cell phone, email, and web. This service is offered at no cost to any agency and there is no installation or training required.
