Board of Alderman to Honor Kat Powers, Look to Put City's Checkbook Online

At tonight's Board of Alderman meeting, they will be honoring Kat Powers who is leaving after years at the Somerville Journal to take a position with the Red Cross as their Director of Communications.

Alderman at Large Bill White is also requesting that the Chief Financial Officer post on the City’s website, an “Open Checkbook” so the public can search details of city spending and vendor payments. This comes on the heels of the State of Massachusetts publishing its checkbook online.

The rest of the agenda can be found on the City's Meeting Portal where you can also watch the meeting live.
