Victoria councillors' voting records now searchable

Finding out how Victoria city councillors vote on issues has been all but impossible for most citizens. Even for those people attending the meetings, it’s easy to miss the quick flash of hands for and against.

So, Victoria city council has resolved this issue. Each councillor’s vote is finally being recorded in the minutes. The policy was introduced last month, but the evidence is now showing up online.

Check it out for yourself in the minutes of the March 22 council meeting, found at https://victoria.civicweb.net
