San Joaquin County lags behind cities in posting info online

In Lodi, Galt and many other cities, getting detailed information on what the city council will face at an upcoming meeting comes as quickly as a few clicks on the computer.

But not so in San Joaquin County. You can find the Board of Supervisors agendas and minutes to previous meetings online, but not staff reports that really tell you what the agenda item is about. And it could be a year before reports are available online

    To TAnDC: I have found similar results. Especially when trying to cross index actions and data sets between the city of Lodi and its RDA and the records from San Joaquin County. I have seen some very curious correlations. I would love to see forensic accountants scrutinize everything to do with the RDA.

    Some of Lodi's pdf files and formats are still from 2006 and it seems they only want to update the unimportants items and issues, otherwise they play the part of the Lodi News-Sentinel and either hide or delete the important facts in file 13. I'm still waiting and looking for that $350,000 or so that was carried over from the 2005-2006 budget for some payments to a certain Lodi contractor who hadn't turned in his certified payroll receipts and Mr. King paid them anyway, apparently TWICE, and since then that $350,000 or so has conveniently disappeared. Maybe the city clerk or the city manager could tell us what happened to that money and who that contractor was? I believe that same contractor does most of the city of Lodi's and much of San Joaquin County's work and if he's the one that took that money or cheated, why is he currently doing work for the city and county?

    In this day and age it seems absurd to say you cannot keep current in your posts to a website. Sounds like excuses from the county for not getting info online in a timely manner. To take one year to make this information available online seems very inefficient.
