The Problem: Many municipalities (Cities, Counties, Towns, Special Taxing Districts) do not have a searchable version of their code online. This is a problem because in order to read the code, a person often has to enter the jurisdiction covered by the code. That means it is impossible to tell whether you are violating the law until you violate the law. Every law should be available to be read by every citizen. The solution: organize a group of people with computers to type the code of ordinances into a word document that can be posted on the municipality's website. Make sure to have a separate group of people double check for typos! Completing this project will create a more transparent government in your location.
