Where oh where did the city codes go? - Draft online

Part 1 2 3 4 5

My column two weeks ago was on the recodification and how the town was leaving a good chunk of people in the dark because of the cost of printing. I suggested putting it online, as most people are smart enough to know that "draft" and "proposed" does not mean final.

During the last workshop(September 27th) the city council asked if it was possible to put it online. Michele Elliott said it would take a few days, but they would get it online. There were some misgivings voiced by some on confusion.

Today it finally got online in PDF form for downloading, but after you say "Okay". Seems you have to click an "I accept" button after reading this.
"I acknowledge by clicking on the "accept" button that I am accessing a WORKING document. Specifically, I have been advised that the Smyrna Municipal Code placed on the website at this time is a DRAFT of the re-codified Smyrna Municipal Code as it has been passed on First Reading by the Smyrna Town Council on September 11, 2007. A copy of the Smyrna Municipal Code as it is currently in effect is available for review and/or copying in the Town Clerk's Office, City Hall, 315 S. Lowry St., Smyrna. The Draft version of the Code attached hereto is not a binding, legal document at this time, and it is available for reference only."
I'm glad to see this finally go online.

If you want a free printed copy, you can get one at town hall Thursday(Oct 4th).
