Coun­cil meet­ings live

Guardian Express - - NEWS -

CITY of Vin­cent will be the first WA coun­cil to livestream, ar­chive and book­mark its coun­cil meet­ings.

Vin­cent coun­cil­lors agreed at their Septem­ber 19 meet­ing to ar­chive live-streamed meet­ings, book­mark items and make them avail­able on the City web­site as soon as prac­ti­cal.

Mayor Emma Cole said other coun­cils of­fered a va­ri­ety of ac­cess to au­dio and vis­ual, but Vin­cent was the only to of­fer the “full ser­vice”.

The City has live-streamed brief­ing ses­sions and coun­cil meet­ings since May 30 this year af­ter ap­prov­ing a cost of $16,000 to up­grade cam­era equip­ment in coun­cil cham­bers and pro­vide a two-year ser­vice.
