Quicker response to open records requests - through online forms for the public - is the goal of a resolution approved recently by the Powder Springs City Council.
The Council will pay $6,755 to MCCi to set up the JustFOIA open records platform.
MCCi of Tallahassee, Florida is a subsidiary of the Municipal Code Corporation which has codified the City Code.
As a result, MCCi has researched and developed a method of recording, tracking and fulfilling open records requests through this hosted web-based platform called JustFOIA as “an efficient means of record access to the public,” according to the city’s resolution.
Through the online portal, the public can track their requests through a secured private portal with status updates, invoices and request documents, according to a June 26 letter to Powder Springs City Clerk Kelly Axt from Brian Meseroll, sales associate with MCCi.
