Coun­cil live on TV?

Kapi-Mana News - - NEWS -

Porirua deputy mayor ’Ana Cof­fey has raised the idea of live stream­ing Porirua City Coun­cil’s com­mit­tee meet­ings.

‘‘It’s about giv­ing more ac­cess to people who may not make it here [to at­tend a meet­ing] dur­ing the week,’’ she told a Te Komiti meet­ing last week.

Welling­ton City Coun­cil live streamed its in­au­gu­ra­tion meet­ing in Oc­to­ber, and drew very poor rat­ings.

How­ever, the Welling­ton coun­cil in­tends live stream­ing reg­u­larly from Au­gust 27.

There will be a re­port to a fu­ture meet­ing of Porirua City Coun­cil on the cost and likely ef­fec­tive­ness of live stream­ing.
