Using Our IPads
There were a few raised eyebrows when the district council loaned an IPad to each councillor.
This is partly for security and data protection reasons required by government – if councillors have confidential emails sent to them by to special councillor email addresses, then the IPads could be checked to see if the emails have been spent on to anywhere else. The IPads are strictly for council use only.
We are starting to get council agendas and accompanying reports sent to our IPads now. This could save a lot of paper and printing costs. The pile of paper above is just the reports for three meetings this week. Admittedly, this is particularly “heavy” week for paperwork. But you can see that over a year it could make some savings….
