WICHITA, KAN.– After being spurred to openness by a citizen group called Open Wichita, the city pursued an open data policy in a very open and cost effective way–with open source tools.

The Washington, DC-based non-profit OpenGov Foundation created the tool Madison to allow civic leaders to post legislation online that citizens can easily comment on. It’s as easy to use as Google docs.

OpenGov helped the city set up a portal at drafts.wichita.gov.
