TV stars in the chamber
BETTER decision-making by councillors is anticipated when three televisions showing agendas are introduced at Cottesloe Council.
“It will also assist the council in moving and amending motions, with the actual motion being voted on being able to be displayed to all present at the meeting,” a staff report said.
At last month’s meeting, councillors agreed the council spend $10,000 on a largescreen TV and two smaller displays for the council chamber.
The report said equipment to record the meetings, and to be used by minute-takers and the public for checks and corrections, would help the public’s understanding of how decisions were made.
The televisions and the audio equipment would be wireless and no cabling would be needed in the heritage-listed chamber. Equipment could be moved.
