36 Tenn. Counties Lack Web Site, Survey Finds


NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - More than a third of Tennessee counties don't have their own Web site, according to a survey by a nonprofit conservative group.

The Sam Adams Alliance reviewed county Web sites in 36 states, assessing whether they offered information about budgets, upcoming meetings, elected and administrative officials, audits, zoning, contracts, lobbying, public records and taxes.

The alliance graded five Tennessee counties - Bradley, Davidson, Hamilton, Montgomery and Williamson with a B+ for having most of the information available online.

According to the review, county sites in Tennessee were mostly likely to post information about elected and administrative officials.
