I have placed five single pages of one of the old Minute Books here for Parish Councillors to comment. These pages are hosted on a free .pdf publication site in Holland called Publitas. There are better and easier to use sites but they cost a monthly subscription. Its quite slow to upload them but once that is done it seems pretty reliable. I would probably place about 25 pages of the minute book on a single website page and have a menu option that refers to the range of dates covered on each website page.
Each of the three old minute books has more than 250 pages, so with the new book and the computer printed minutes we will already have something around 1000 pages. This is far more than can be placed on a website directly that’s why we need to use something like Publitas. Most other .pdf publication sites have a cost associated with their use. I did not think it an appropriate use of funds, now and onwards into the future, to create a cost on the precept for this.
Please let me know what you think.
