Uninformative Florida counties

I notice that 67 Florida county websites are not a bright beacon of sunshine-y goodness.

Attorney General Bill McCollum has noticed the same thing (maybe he read our link above) and has issued a call for improvement, which he’d like to see happen by mid-March 2009.

McCollum mentions that counties and school districts should “immediately place on their websites the email address and phone number for their public records points of contact.”

Right now, only three counties do that: Duval, Escambia and Highlands.

The counties do better with online budgets: 47 out of 67 have budgets online.
