Transparency and Communication in Leonia

Learn about IQM2
In October 2011, Council President Peter Knott proposed that the Borough eliminate much of its cumbersome and expensive paper-based operations. The Borough has since adopted the IQM2 system to generate, track and archive electronically municipal documents in a searchable form.
This state of the art technology provides:
  • live streaming of Council meetings in progress 
  • archived videos of past meetings 
  • public access to Council agendas and minutes 
  • the packet of documents prepared for each meeting including resolutions and appointments
