Utah.gov, which has been honored for raising "the bar among states by providing 24/7 live online help" to its constituents and for providing "easy access and easy navigation to services and information," has added another noteworthy service to its repertoire: the Utah Public Meeting Notice. The new Web site is a place for Utahns to find out when and where state agencies, school boards and most local-government public bodies are meeting and what they are talking about. Launched in October, the site lets users search for current and archived public notices by typing in a specific entity, keyword or date or by browsing through a list of agencies. Users can also subscribe to have notifications of future meetings and meeting notes sent to them via e-mail or RSS feeds. By law, all state agencies and local governments with budgets over $1 million must use the Public Meeting Notice site. Previously, state agencies and local governments were required to post notices of meetings only in newspapers or by informing local media correspondents.
