Coun­cil up with the play

Kapi-Mana News - - NEWS -

Porirua City Coun­cil is drag­ging its doc­u­men­ta­tion into the 21st cen­tury. In early April the coun­cil com­mit­tee, a rec­om­men­da­tion body made up of ev­ery coun­cil­lor and the mayor, changed its name to Te Komiti – a move sug­gested by Western Ward coun­cil­lor ’Ana Cof­fey. Two weeks later Quick Re­sponse codes ap­peared on printed coun­cil agen­das. A QR code is a bar­code which smart­phones can scan, giv­ing them in­stant elec­tronic ac­cess to the in­for­ma­tion. Along­side coun­cil­lors’ trial ipads, these moves might con­firm Porirua’s coun­cil as the hippest in New Zealand.
