New Software to Streamline City of Coronado Agenda Management

The City of Coronado is implementing a new software program called PrimeGov to automate agenda management, and board, commission, and committee applications. Through automation, PrimeGov facilitates a much more streamlined process for easy review and management of staff reports and agendas by key staff members. It is more efficient, creates consistency across departments, and minimizes errors related to Brown Act posting requirements.

For the public, the agenda will allow for active links for easier online viewing and navigation on desktops as well as mobile devices. The public may now easily click on specific staff reports and attachments rather than scrolling or using bookmarks. The public also may provide comments directly on each item that will be posted for public viewing. With PrimeGov, agendas and staff reports, from 2019 to date, will be available to search by keywords, which was not available previously.

The City is implementing the new program to modernize work related to the business of the City Council and expects increased transparency, better access, and an improved experience for citizens with the new agenda management software. Look for changes in the coming weeks. Speaking of changes, agenda readers may have noticed a new layout of staff reports. This change makes agendas easier to read and understand and gets straight to the issue.
