Another area which might be worthy of investigation for openness is public notices. While the law permits cities to summerize new ordinances instead of printing them in full, I believe it also requires them to include information so that the general public can understand what the ordinances cover, rather than just say "changes are being made to section xxxx of the zoning ordinance." Many summaries fail to do this.
The other public notice problem is notice of hearings about items involving "Tract 2034" without saying where it is, and similar code names that leave the public in the dark.
