COLUMBIA — 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 http://columbiamissourian.com/records.
The Records: Columbia Transit proposed a new plan to improve the bus system through a program called CoMO Connect.
Why you'd want them: Before CoMO Connect is voted on by the city council, public hearings will take place on select dates in October, November and December inviting public comment about the changes addressed in the program's plans. Residents can attend meetings and share their opinions about CoMO Connect.
Where you get the records: Go to http://www.gocolumbiamo.com/

How much will it cost: The information is free.
