Council webcast to continue
The live webcasting of Central Coast Council meetings is set to continue following adoption of a recommendation by Council at its April meeting in Wyong.
A trial live webcasting of Council meetings had been held over the past six months.
Council administrator Mr Ian Reynolds said the Council had received a lot of constructive feedback and was now taking the necessary steps to improve the service.
"I believe it is important the decisions of the Council are as open and accessible as possible and webcasting can help deliver that effectively," Mr Reynolds said.
"Over the next few months, there will be refurbishments made to both Chambers to accommodate the 15 newly elected Councillors and at this time adjustments will be made to incorporate webcasting, including improving the sound quality."
"That was the feedback we got: that sometimes the audio dropped out so we are making appropriate steps to fix this issue."
The webcast will be available for viewing until the next meeting of Council, meaning those who cannot view the meeting at the time it is broadcast will have an opportunity to do so at a time that suits them.
Live webcasting of Council meetings can be viewed via Council's website and its youtube channel.
