Government Reform Thoughts

All county agencies should have a webpage that is searchable from all major search engines. In researching the Union County Improvement Authority (UCIA), we discovered that most New Jersey counties, including Salem, have detailed webpages for their improvement authorities, but there is no website for the UCIA. The State directed our newspaper to the Union County Watchdog Association's website, which posts all UCIA meetings and minutes after filling out OPRA requests to obtain them. This is not a good way to achieve transparency in county government. - See year-to-date reform thoughts.
