Top Issue: Operational Efficiency
KACo supports repealing the arbitrary 80,000 population threshold and supports permitting all counties to publish public notices on their website instead of using taxpayer dollars to pay to print the notices in a local newspaper.
Only counties with a population of 80,000 or more can post advertisements and documents for public notice on their website. Other counties must pay to print the entire statement in a local newspaper, many of which are only weekly publications.
With a growing number of digital resources available to local government and residents, notices published on a county website would be more accessible and timely for the public, available for a longer time and save taxpayer dollars.
