In order to view certain documents on the City of Midland website, you will need a program called Acrobat Reader. This program installs a "plug-in" into your browser's plug-in folder so that your browser will automatically open up PDF (Portable Document Format) documents for you to view and/or print.
A free copy of Acrobat Reader can be downloaded from Adobe's website. If you already have Adobe Acrobat installed, please verify that you have version 4.0 or 5.0. Older versions may have some problems opening newer documents. Just visit the website and follow the instructions on Adobe's website to download Acrobat Reader's installation program to your computer. Then, double-click on the installation program icon to install Acrobat Reader onto your computer (which will include installing the Acrobat Reader plug-in into your web browser's plug-in folder). Once you have installed Acrobat Reader onto your computer, you can return to the City of Midland website and try to open the above sample PDF document again.
Note: Make sure that you install the proper web browser before you install Acrobat Reader. This is because Acrobat Reader needs be able to place the Acrobat Reader plug-in inside of your browser's plug-in folder.
