PDXCouncilConnect is a service of the Portland, Oregon, eGovPDX group. The city technology department makes the API available to access city council agenda and voting information. The PDXCouncilConnect API provides developers access to agenda, session, and item information. The data includes the location and time, as well as bureaus affected. When a vote occurs, the API also will return voting information.
This government API has a RESTful interface and provides data as JSON.
16 developers and designers showed off their projects and many more participated at this weekend's API Hack Day PDX. The overall winner was an app that helps friends communicate about a planned event using an email and SMS hybrid. Others took on Portland government data and worked with multiple APIs to get details around a specific location. We list many of them in our Hackday Gallery.
