South Bend Common Council gets new iPads
SOUTH BEND, Ind. — Members of the South Bend Common Council have gone digital. The city just bought iPads for members and their attorney.
Each year printing costs for the council totaled over $13,000. The city hopes this will help save money and paper.
They also hope this will open up a new avenue for communication.
Soon the council will roll out a new Facebook page where they will post notes from meetings.
"We can also begin to update them on activities, programs, services that not only the council has to offer, but also from the administration perspective," said Karen White, South Bend Common Council.
The council expects that Facebook page to go live in a few days.
