Savings to follow move from paper
Washington County Board members will begin receiving documents related to county board business electronically by springtime.
Moving to electronic delivery will save at least $5,000 over the next four years in staff costs, printing and mailing paper packets, the county said.
Earlier in February the County Board approved a $1,500 stipend to purchase electronic equipment to receive documents for county business electronically. Board members who accept the stipend will be required to personally own a device that is able to connect to the county network and that allows the board member to receive the weekly board packet electronically.

The Washington County Board of Commissioners has approved a contract with Stantec Consulting Services Inc. to start design work on construction of a roundabout at Radio Drive and Military Road in Woodbury.
Stantec was selected after obtaining competitive bids. The design contract is for $78,416. The project is part of the county’s 2013 Capital Improvement Plan.
