Sartell Updates Legislative Priorities

SARTELL — The city of Sartell has put together their legislative priorities ahead of a meeting with the six area cities next week. Among them are changes to the Government Data Practices Act.

City Administrator Patti Gartland says in light of the Verso Paper explosion, they want to make the identities of people involved in traumatic injury events private information.  She says it’s a way to protect those victims, much like the way we protect sexual abuse victims.

Gartland says they will also lobby for changing the Government Data Practices Act to make customers’ e-mails private.  Currently, if you subscribe to public safety alerts or have online billing, your e-mails are public record.

She says they wanted to take a look at what priorities should be removed and what should be added to the city’s priorities before joining with the other five cities in creating the priorities.

One of the issues sure to be on the final draft is the extension of the Local Option Sales Tax which helps pay for area projects.
