We need to shift DC to being paperless to the maximum extent possible. Citizens should have the option of having notices and other correspondence sent to them via email instead of via traditional mail ("snail mail"). Besides being the better environmental choice, this will save the District the postage and printing costs associated with sending physical documents through the mail. The District has to work harder to be both more green and more fiscally responsible with the tax dollars we collect from our citizens, spending as wisely as possible and saving wherever we can.
