LOCAL GOVERNMENT WEBSITE TRANSPARENCY PROJECT

 

FROM SCHOOL BOARDS TO COUNTY BOARDS PROMOTING ACCESS TO INFORMATION ON ELECTED OFFICIALS AND PUBLIC MEETINGS

 

Wisconsin is home to 2,350 local elected bodies - city councils, county boards, village boards, town boards and school boards - with a combined total of more than 13,000 elected officials. For citizens, finding information about who represents them and how to participate can be a daunting task.

 

The ConnectWI Logo on a Wisconsin Local Government Official Web Site recognizes excellence in providing easily accessible and timely information on local elected officials, and opportunities to participate in and learn about the workings of public decision-making bodies such as boards and committees -- key elements in ensuring citizen participation and the democratic process.
