Rockford Town Council Minutes, February 1, 2012 ...

The minutes of Fairfield Town Council and Palouse City Council meetings and Public hearings are provided to this newspaper as soon as possible after each meeting adjourns. They carry the notation minutes are preliminary and won't be official until approved at the next meeting.

This practice benefits their communities by providing residents information in a timely manner of how their town is being governed.

Other towns could enhance community cooperation if their residents had access to minutes in a similarly timely fashion.

The current efforts of four Palouse town councils to secure recycling, for example, might fare better if all four town councils made their actions known to the public via press releases, like Fairfield.

The above headlines link readers to the latest Rockford Town Council Minutes available to the public via news media.
