When will Boone County Government enter the web age?

The school districts have it, Rock Valley College has it, as does the City of Belvidere.  But Boone County Board  does not.  I am speaking of posting minutes of board meetings on the internet.  They may have not done this on their own.  Since 2006 it is mandated by state law for most governmental units.

So where are we in this whole thing at Boone County Government.  Take a look at my letter and if you agree with me that the county minutes should be posted on the internet, please contact your local representative on the Boone County Board.

Low-cost pet vaccines in Lake Co.

Here is something the low-income residents of Boone County may need.  Has the Boone County Health Department or Boone County Animal Control ever thought about coordinating such a program as a public service? 

open only to low-income residents of Lake County who are receiving government assistance such as food stamps or disability payments.

A one-year rabies shot, tag and distemper is $25 for spayed or neutered pets
