Opinion Letters County officials commended for saving paper

Macon Pride, an organization to promote the environmental and economic value of recycling, wishes to commend our county manager, Mr. Jack Horton, and our county commissioners, Mr. Kevin Corbin, Mr. Ronnie Beale, Mr. James Tate, and Mr. Ron Haven, for their new use of a specially designed web-site and computer tablets for their meeting agendas.

This saves thousands of pages of paper generated every month for all county personnel who conduct our commission meetings. It allows writing and editing, ease of production, and is a 21st century means of economically conducting the business of Macon County. Additionally, the purchase of the necessary tablets, and programming the web site is ultimately less expensive than the costs of paper, which is shredded and unnecessarily takes up valuable space in the Macon County landfill.

Our commendation, gentlemen, and our appreciation, not only from Macon Pride, but from all residents who care about saving our environment and taxes.
