Boone County to Post Minutes Online


Rockford Register Star:

BELVIDERE — Boone County will begin publishing minutes from board meetings on its website, but officials say the action isn’t the result of a Dec. 1 letter from the Illinois attorney general’s office.

Bill Pysson, a 22-year county resident, filed a “request for review” with Attorney General Lisa Madigan’s office in April because the county failed to address his request for meeting minutes after numerous inquiries at meetings, he said.

“There was some consideration when the new website went online they would do it, but they haven’t,” he said.

Pysson runs the site Boone County Watchdog, which CB has linked to for some months now. Go here for more on the story.
