Preckwinkle promises open government plan

April 20, 2011

Cook County Board President Toni Preckwinkle and commissioners from both the Democratic and Republican parties announced a plan Tuesday to make Cook County government more open and accessible.

Called the Open Cook County Plan, “people will be able to access and use and visualize data ranging on anything, from health statistics to forest preserve facilities availabilities to incident reports,” County Commissioner John Fritchey told ABCLocal.

Fritchey told the Chicago Tribune he plans to introduce the plan at Wednesday’s meeting of the County Board.

As of Wednesday morning the proposed website was still under construction and details of the plan were not yet posted on the board site of the county board.
