Snohomish County Has Email Archiving System ... But Isn't Using It

This story from The (Everett) Herald describes how Snohomish County spent $87,000 for an email archiving system to allow it to provide better responses to public records request. But the program was "sidelined last year because the program was deemed a low priority."

A paid-for way to provide better responses to public records. A low priority.
