FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: Dec. 7, 2011

City Council Chambers goes paperless Dec. 14

Council will receive training to use new technology

The City of Kansas City, Mo., City Council Chambers will begin using a new technology system on Wednesday, Dec. 14 that will enable City Council meetings to go entirely paperless. To prepare, staff will train the City Council to operate the new equipment and technology on Monday, Dec. 12 at 1 p.m. in the Council Chambers, located on the 26th floor of City Hall, 414 E. 12th St.

“Eliminating paper from the Council Chambers will benefit both the City and the public in many ways,” said Mayor Pro Tem Cindy Circo. “Going paperless is both environmentally-friendly and economical – it will result in a cost savings of about $35,000 per year. Introducing innovative technology will also facilitate more efficient processes and increase transparency between the public and government.”

In addition to this new, paperless technology system, the City Council Chambers has undergone other renovations recently. Crews have replaced carpeting and chairs and installed new LCD panel monitors for better viewing of presentations. Television cameras were permanently mounted on the walls of the chamber to improve Channel 2’s meeting coverage.

For more information about the City Council Chambers recent renovations, please contact Dennis Gagnon, City Communications Office, at 816-513-2659.
