SULPHUR, La. (AP) - City government in Sulphur is going paperless.
Mayor Chris Duncan tells the Lake Charles American Press that the Sulphur City Council went paperless for the first time in its Monday meeting. The city's Land Use Commission had gone paperless in two meetings to test the concept.
The city purchased six Dell Latitude 10 tablets for $500 each with funds from its administrative budget. Duncan said the tablets are strictly for meeting use.
The tablets display the City Council's agenda, resolutions and ordinances, replacing more than a dozen binders that were being used before. Duncan said that by making the switch the city will save about a case of paper per meeting.
