Electronic history

Back before computers and even typewriters, Plainville officials kept the town's records by hand. A new project will immortalize all town bylaws, regulations and minutes in electronic form.

Town Clerk Kathleen Sandland said she hopes to scan records dating back to 1905, and will definitely include all those from 1943 and on, when the town began typing its minutes.

Town Meeting voters last night approved $25,326 for this project as they finalized a $22.1 million budget.
