Rural Cumberland County township adopts e-mail policy
In response to my request, the Township of Greenwich (Cumberland County) adopted an e-mail policy, on-line here, for its elected and appointed officials. While weaker than what I would prefer, the policy "discourages" Township officials from using their personal e-mail accounts. Instead, it requires them to adopt a free e-mail account, such as one from GMail or Yahoo, and "use a name such that they are identifiable in the contest of their role with the Township of Greenwich including by way of example and not limitation: 'email@example.com'” It requires officials to give the Township Clerk their e-mail passwords so that e-mails may be searched "provide responsive information in compliance with State law to any document request.
