I’ve been doing weekly recaps of City Administrator Joel Walinkski’s Friday memo for forever. Actually it was Griff who started it. We wanted to disseminate the information in the Friday Memo (a PDF link posted on the City website), highlighting items of note with the ability to link to other documents and materials. Eventually the Northfield News and others began posting links to the Friday Memo, and recently the City started including hyperlinks in the memo PDF itself.
I’m wondering if Griff’s original idea has now outlived its usefulness. Since there are rarely any comments on the Friday Memo posts, I’m not sure we’re doing much of a service; not enough, that is, to justify the hassle factor (for me). So I’d like to know, if I discontinue doing the Friday Memo posts, does anyone care?
I haven’t done the last two, and the only person I’ve heard from about it is Griff. 🙂 I’m happy to continue if our commentary is an added value, but if not, the information is available multiple places now. I’d like to know what you think.
