Westport Town Council to go on-line

Westport Town Council has agreed to examine the possibility of broadcasting its council meetings via the internet. The web casting of the meetings was proposed by Labour councillor Keith Martin at the April meeting of the council and was seconded by Cllr Peter Flynn.

Cllr Martin stated that Fingal County Council have become the first council in Ireland to do so and that he saw no reason why Westport Town Council should not be the first Town Council to do so.

Cllr Martin told the council “We have the technology, finance and resources to do so. Doing so would allow greater involvement between the citizen and their local government. This can be done through our website.”

Cllr Martin also called on Westport Town Manger to investigate the delay in putting the council’s website on-line saying “I recall, fondly, the memory of the Town Manager stating early last year that our town council’s website would be on line by June 2005!”

Let me save you loads of effort and the taxpayer loads of money.

We have the technology.

It can be done.

Of course doing it and talking about doing it is another thing.

All ya need is a webcam and a mic and some software which can be gotten for free. It's called............well that would take all the effort out of it for you wouldn't it.

It's not all that big a deal - this web broadcast stuff.

I'd say a budget of around €30 should be more than adequate.

Hey this politics game is easy isn't it.

I check out Fingal's webcasts just now. Very impressive but it takes a lot more than a camera and mic to do.

All councils should broadcast via the web.

In agreement with :o(

And I have found a cheaper way to do it, pick up a second hand webcam, most ISP’s out there give free server space so they can throw their site up on that.

Which means enough change out of the €30 to by biscuits to go along with the Boston tea party.
