Re: [betaNYC] Tomorrow @ 10AM: City Council hearing on public Sandy database

Prudence,

Thanks for pointing out this meeting. As BetaNYC is part of the NYC Transparency Working Group coalition. We sent a letter to the City Council asking this bill/database have the following:

• Comply with NYC Administrative Code, Title 23, Chapter 5: Accessibility to Public Data Sets (i.e. NYC’s Open Data Law). The datasets that are accessible through the database interface should also be fully available on the NYC Open Data portal in disaggregate form.
• Be updated every time the Sandy-related spending database is updated, or with reasonable frequency.
• Be created with input from NYC's technology community, with particular attention to usability.

Cheers,
Noel

Hi, I thought some of you may be interested in this - I just learned about it myself:

Tomorrow, on Friday, November 15 at 10AM. The New York City Council Committee on Finance will hold a public hearing on a bill that would require the city to create a public database of Hurricane Sandy expenditures.
