GRANTS PASS, Ore. — The Grants Pass City Council is now saving several thousands of dollars by going paperless.
City Council members and their senior staff all have Microsoft “tablets.” The tablets are similar to iPad’s. Council members decided to purchase them after seeing how much paper they wasted every meeting.
“It was budgeted by the council as one of their intended projects, and though it costs a little bit upfront, over the long run it should save us a lot of money,” Assistant City Manager, David Reeves, said.
The mayor was the first to test out the tablet. City Council decided on the Microsoft brand because it was compatible with their other electronic systems.
