Some city commissioners in central Florida want to replace the stacks of paper they get before meetings with something more state-of-the-art — the iPad.

Ormond Beach's city commissioners say their plan to have the city buy the mayor and four commissionersiPads will save taxpayers money.

Every two weeks, city leaders get stacks of documents before meetings at city hall. Officials say the paper alone costs $1,100 a year.

The five iPads could cost around $3,250.

It's not the first Florida city to phase out paper. Palm Coast city leaders replaced printed documents with iPadsearlier this year.
