MOUNT VERNON — Mount Vernon City Council members have been considering a move to a paperless meeting management system. To that end, they and other city officials attended a webinar to familiarize themselves with the possibilities available through 21st-century technology, and Councilwoman Nancy Vail said she is sure it will be a topic of discussion for all of council and the administration rather soon.
The webinar, held Monday in the fire department training room, gave the officials an overview of a cloud-based system called IQM2, short for intelligent meeting management software and services. The presentation demonstrated step-by-step how to create a resolution, worked through the creation of a sample meeting agenda and minutes, and discussed the customization options available. With IQM2, an unlimited number of attachments, including charts and graphs, can be added to any document created and an internal audit trail is automatically engaged.
