I was trying to look up the Pit Bull ordinance for Harriman and realized that Harriman's web site hadn't been updated since the minutes for last July.

Folks, this is easy stuff to do. Come on Mayors, get with the best communication tool yet and update your web site. There's all sorts of cheap and even free software tailored for municipalities, so there's no excuse for being slack.

I've looked at it. Here is a web address you can go to and read the ordinance. Go to (link...) and in the left column it will link you to ordinances and charters.

Yes there are the ordinances, but where are the minutes? What about the Agenda that allowed folks to talk about what they want in their community? There is NOTHING mentioned in the March or February minutes. This ordinance is a big deal. What about the guy that owns the new grooming/pet shop near Sears? Is that the City limits?
