BROADCASTING GOV'T: Some meetings may be coming to video

February 19, 2012


COLUMBIA CITY — When Mayor Ryan Daniel was elected, he said he wanted the inner-workings of city government to be more accessible to the public.

Minutes of public meetings have always been available to read on the city’s website. As of the beginning of Daniel’s term, audio recordings of Columbia City Common Council and Board of Works and Safety has been made available. Now, talks have begun about adding video into the mix. "We're looking to potentially provide council and board of works live for our residents to watch,” said Daniel.

Daniel said the topic was raised to garner thoughts and opinions, but that the discussion was still in its infancy. Text and audio versions of the 2012 meetings can be found at www.columbiacity.net.
