Aurora council might use iPads to save money

The Aurora City Council is considering trying out iPads to go green and help save some green.

The Aurora Sentinel reports that council members in the east Denver suburb want to see if using the tablet computers can replace papers.

City officials say it currently costs $710 to print each city council information packet and another $200 per council member to assemble and deliver the packets.

The city says each iPad will cost $729 and $180 per year for a data plan. It would take the city a year to recover the costs of printing the packets, but then officials say they would start saving money.

Aurora Councilwoman Barb Cleland says not using paper would also be more environmentally friendly.
