NORTH KINGSTOWN â€“ In an effort to save money on printing paper, the town council unanimously approved the purchase of six Apple iPads and two spares for a cost of $8,000 to be paid for out of the Town Council Contingency Fund.
Five of the iPads will be for the five members of the council and one for the town clerk and will not be allowed for personal use. Itâ€™s expected that the iPads will save approximately $18,000 annually in printing, paper, consumables and staff costs for the thick stack of paper information packets that are sent to council members every meeting.
