WINCHESTER, Ky. (AP) - Officials in a central Kentucky county
are considering going paperless, saying using an iPad for all
official business would save as much as $7,200 annually.
Clark County Judge-Executive Henry Branham and Clark County
Attorney Brian Thomas pitched the idea to county commissioners
during last week's Fiscal Court meeting.
Branham told The Winchester Sun that dropping paper copies of
documents such as orders, ordinances and agendas could save the
county an estimated $600 a month in materials and time.
Thomas estimated that 500 pages were printed for the last week's
Branham called the effort cutting edge.
Thomas acknowledged that the effort would require additional
money up front for an iPad, which start at about $500 for a new
one, but he said the overall results would be cost-cutting.
