There is a certain happiness sighted when your bus comes along. It is of course a small specialized form of happiness and will never be a great thing.

Digital paper chase

Two weeks ago, Sacramento Regional Transit directors authorized the district to start charging for paper copies of documents. I wasn't especially hopeful when staff promised that all of the documents would be available for download. Well, I'm happy to say that RT has posted the entire agenda package for Monday's board meeting.

This is an important public service and RT is to be congratulated for making the effort to make these public records available for free. Now it will be interesting to see if the availability of this information improves public participation in the meetings.
