This tweet from Milton Councillor Rick DiLorenzo has re-ignited possibilities offered by Open Data:
1 Staff Report CORS-017-12
Subject: Open Data
Staff Recommendation: THAT report CORS-017-12 regarding Council’s inquiry into the costs, resources and risks involved with the possible implementation of Open Data be received for information;
AND THAT staff be directed to include in the 2013 budget a program for Council consideration to enable the delivery of data in an alternative format to support an Open Data initiative.
Bottom line, there is a _possibility_ that 2013 budget may include a program for open data.
