Porirua City Coun­cil will not be live stream­ing its meet­ings.

Coun­cil­lors de­bated the is­sue at the Te Komiti meet­ing on Au­gust 28.

Deputy mayor ’ Ana Cof­fey’s re­quest for a re­port on stream­ing meet­ings live over the in­ter­net did not find favour with her col­leagues.

While the takeup for watch­ing meet­ings was low, there were ad­van­tages to stream­ing, Cof­fey said. It would give the com­mu­nity a chance to see what hap­pens at meet­ings and could serve as an ar­chive.

Coun­cil chief ex­ec­u­tive Gary Simp­son set-up costs would be up to $70,000 and the ser­vice would cost up to $36,000 a year to main­tain.
