From some reason, Thursday was the day to start finding all kinds of references to public notices and the efforts to get those out of newspapers and into another venue, such as online publications. Reading and then following links, I found a site that has chronicled state and local government efforts to move notices from newspapers. The references – nine pages total – date back to October, 2010. And appear to be current through last week.
If you go to the site, you’re going to find about half of the states mentioned where the efforts have momentum. And fortunately, through the nine pages of legislative efforts and local referenda, I can’t find Kentucky mentioned once. Hallelujah for that!
The site, if you want to check what non-newspaper folks are saying, is http://legal-notice.org/blog
