Toward a paper-light future

Wednesday, January 17, 2018 by Chad Swiatecki

The city’s Innovation Office and Communications and Technology Management Department have partnered with the Austin Tech Alliance for a new program to reduce and eliminate paper usage in city operations. Known as Paper Census, the partnership will use people and resources from Austin’s tech sector to take an inventory of paper processes and nondigital media through the city government and solicit community feedback on how to improve access to services while creating ways to modernize and digitize city services. Full details of the partnership will be announced at a press conference at 9:30 a.m. Thursday in the media room at City Hall.
