The policy would have the Town Clerk design a checklist for use by department heads that would help them easily determine which documents would be subject to release under the policy. Reducing the workload of analyzing every document was a chief concern of some officials when the idea of an attachment release policy was first introduced.
Councilman Kyle Kotary said he was originally skeptical of the idea, not wanting to overburden staff, but is happy with the finished product.
"We were able to come up with a pretty streamlined, if not very streamlined, system," he said.
Supervisor Sam Messina made similar comments.
"This thing is effective, non-bureaucratic, and it will work well," he said.
Attachments for the Wednesday, Oct. 27, meeting of the Town Board should be released ahead of time, on Oct. 25.""
