Common Cause Massachusetts Report: Transparency in Massachusetts Municipal Websites

March 17, 2010



This Common Cause Massachusetts report reads, in part, 'Our research found that 326 municipalities have some presence on the Internet, while 25 do not maintain a website at all. Of those with websites, we concluded that 181 municipalities, or 51.5% post all of the targeted records. 91 municipalities, or 25.6%, also post additional governance documents1?an archive of the governing body's minutes and agenda, a calendar, zoning by-laws, and a recent agenda and minutes from the school committee and another board or committee. Additionally, the review found that 303 municipalities maintain a website with at least a single targeted document.'
