SHOW ME THE RECORDS: Columbia City Council work sessions

Monday, January 3, 2011 | 12:01 a.m. CST

Each week, the Missourian highlights a government record that is available to the public. Open records help people keep government in check and help them better understand how government affects their lives.

For a complete list of Show Me the Records, go to

The records: The Columbia City Council keeps minutes of each of its work session meetings.

Why you'd want them: You can read through the Columbia City Council work session minutes to find information about concerns over local zoning issues and health insurance options and costs. Graphics are available for the statistics presented during the meetings.

Where you get the records: Go to, then download the file with the minutes of the council meeting you want to read through. All of the regular council meeting minutes and pre-council meeting minutes are available since the first of the year. And past years’ meeting minutes are available in the archives.

How much it will cost: The information is free.
