25 April (Part 2) -
and council meetings
For collectors of election leaflets, three new ones…
English Democrats :
Erith & Thamesmead.
Old Bexley & Sidcup.
The Christian Party :
Bexley & Sidcup.
February a ‘Meetings’ icon was added to the menu system above (not on the
Day only blog pages) which provided a pop up list of forthcoming council
meetings. It was introduced at the suggestion of a BiB reader and I hoped it
might reduce the number of requests for the date of the next council meeting.
In that regard it has been a failure and all it has done is provide extra work
keeping the list up to date.
From today that system is changed. The ‘Meetings’ icon is still there but when
pressed it will interrogate Bexley council’s webserver and extract the dates of
the meetings and display those scheduled for the current month and the
following month. Click a listed entry to visit the relevant council web page for
the Agenda etc. when available.
As the council’s year is near its end the list of meetings is currently short.
That will change soon.
It will not always respond instantly because Bexley’s webserver appears to use a
Z81 processor powered by an elastic band.
Note: The memory usage considerations which led to the facility
not being provided on the ‘Day only’ pages do not apply to the new
system so ‘Meetings’ will be applied to those pages soon.
