Selectmen to Consider iPads
The goal would be to reduce paper and printing costs.
Selectman Barry Greenfield proposed at the last board meeting that he receive all the paperwork for the board's meeting on his computer and thus save the cost of printing the material on paper.
Town Administrator Thomas Younger said when he was interim manager at the town of Ipswich that the Board of Selectmen and Finance Committee there used iPads and cut the cost of printing significantly.
The Swampscott Board of Selectmen seemed interested in pursuing the use of iPads and save the cost of printing.
