Project: Identify Waste

Josh over at Blog Waukesha is starting a great new project: “Project Identify Waste” on his blog. I’m pretty pleased that he chose open records as the first tool he’ll be using to identify waste. If all goes as it should, I think access to Waukesha’s public records will be the only tool necessary to source out excessive city spending. My suspicion, however, is that while public records will hold all of the information that he is seeking, actually gaining access to them may require such additional tools as lawsuits or the outing of city staff that are stingy with providing proper access.

Good luck Josh!

    Thanks for the heads-up on Josh and his blog; will head on over and check this out but just had to toss in my 2 cents here…I think you’ve hit a bullseye about gaining access. But he’s got support from this “quarter”. 😉
