iPads set to save Sidney a sea of paper

Town of Sidney to order tablets for council members, senior staff

Sidney will save some trees and staff time by implementing new technology in the council chamber.

The town will provide a mid-range iPad with two-year warranty and keypad to councillors and senior staff. Sidney will purchase a dozen of the tablets, as the mayor already uses one, at a cost of $850 each. Support and licensing is $4,800. The funds will come from the computer equipment replacement reserve fund for 2012.

The town anticipates the tablets will recoup their costs in a year, with savings on paper and staff time creating agendas and background packages for committee and council meetings.
