City makes the jump taking Tahoe online
At the mere touch of a keyboard – and of course a computer and a modem connection – the city of South Lake Tahoe can now be accessed from all corners of the earth.
Although the official city home page went online in April, a new site devoted specifically to the city clerk’s office was completed last week.
“We’re linked to, and can be accessed off, the city home page,” said Angela Peterson, city clerk. “People can get city council agendas and minutes online now, as opposed to being on a mailing list which costs $55.”
Agendas and minutes for the South Tahoe Redevelopment Agency and the South Tahoe Housing Authority are also accessible through the site.
Although right now the city’s information systems department is rushing to replace its financial software system before the year 2000, Information Systems Technician Kenin Fairley said the city’s Web site is still work in progress.
“Right now we’re just using it for basic information about Tahoe. In the long term though, we want to go paperless. But that’s many years down the road,” Fairley said. “Hopefully someday, when you need to fill out a form for the city, you can go to the Web site and do it all electronically. That’ll be a big job for us, of course.”
Peterson hopes to use the city clerk page for basic forms, election information and anything else that would facilitate accessibility to city information for residents.
Agendas can still be reviewed at the city clerk’s office at 1052 Tata Lane and subscriptions are also still available.
