“We can maintain government transparency and save property taxpayers’ money by allowing for free Internet postings of legal notices on town and county websites to replace paid newspaper publication requirements,” said Thompson. “I have never once read a published legal notice in a newspaper, and I’m willing to bet that most New Jerseyans haven’t either. It’s an archaic requirement that must be updated for the Internet age.”
