Valdosta - Valdosta leaders have found another way to help the city go green.

They say the city's $45-million budget for 2008 won't be printed on paper.

Instead, it will be distributed on CD.

The change may seem small but the city estimates they'll save hundreds of thousands of paper by doing so.

"That's probably about 10,000 pages that we've saved just at this point. The next phase of the budget is 2500 pages for one copy so you can imagine the savings there," says Mark Barber, Deputy City Manager of Administration.

They say if the paperless budget goes well, they hope to make all city council agendas paperless as well.
