County Data Practices

In the hopes of speeding up the county's response to public data requests Winona County Commissioners approved an interim responsible party to oversee the requests.

Assistant County Administrator Maureen Holte was appointed to the interim position which will determine which county departments will handle the requests in a timely manner.

Holte told the board most of the minor requests for public documents are being handled quickly.

Commissioner Steve Jacob wanted the board make changes to the policy to improve on what is being done currently which has produced an 8-month delay in satisfying one request.

The current solution is temporary as the board continues to update the county's 2004 manual on data practices to comply with current law.
