Please note that not all A-grade town and school boards started there a year ago. In fact, I don’t think any had a grade of A on Feb. 2. 2012.
Yet all the school districts and some town boards, like Indian Lake and Minerva, have made a lot of progress. They worked at it. Some have even spent money; the town of Indian Lake spent about $4,000 on a new printer/copier/scanner to meet the requirement.
But it takes leadership to step up and do what’s right by the taxpayers.
Please — and this is our plea to supervisors, superintendents and board members — work hard to reach a “meeting packet” grade A on your website by the end of 2013. Your residents will thank you. And we’ll be watching.
