Going "paperless" is a great way to be a little greener and Abilene's City Council has done just that with the purchase of iPads.
With this purchase comes quite a few benefits including better use of space and organization, saving the city money and using less paper.
"Every week we get very large 3-ring binders with the information for the upcoming meeting and then we have budget binders and there are binders everywhere...at some point you start running out of places to put them," said Kellie Miller with the Abilene City Council.
There were, of course, many things to consider when deciding whether or not to purchase the iPads but in the end the benefits very much outweighed the initial cost.
"It's a win, win for everybody concerned...for the city, the council and environmentally as well," said Miller.
