Local Government Legislation Online

Many local government agencies like city councils, county boards of supervisors and school districts are putting online their agendas, votes on local ordinances and other measures, minutes of past meetings or even packets of background information on agenda items.

You need to check the website for the agency to see what's available, usually at a city clerk, county clerk or clerk of the school board office.

For help locating local government websites around the United States try the State and Local Governments on the Net site.
