Afton City Council meetings' minutes to be abbreviated

As if city administrator Jim Norman didn't already have enough to do in Afton, he will now also be taking the minutes for the council meetings.

At the Afton City Council's Feb. 18 workshop, the council agreed that in order to save money, they are going to terminate their agreement with Time Saver, the transcription company that currently records the minutes.

Norman's new role as minute taker won't be that much of an extra burden since the council agreed to move away from transcription minutes into abridged minutes, where only the motions and actions are recorded.

All of the council members agreed that transitioning over into abridged minutes seems like a great cost-saving measure and will save them a lot of time when reviewing them.

The meetings will still be recorded and DVD's will be available at city hall for anyone interested.
