City of Vincent to archive streamed council meetings

THE City of Vincent is expected to make an archive of its “popular” live streamed meetings available free on its website.

The first meeting live streamed on May 17 received 118 visitors and each subsequent meeting received more than 70 each time.

Briefing sessions have attracted fewer, with 49 being the maximum on August 15.

The City spent more than $16,000 upgrading its equipment to achieve the live streams for two years after passing the move in March. Administrations said the “popularity of the live streams has more than matched expectations, but several requests were received for an archive of the live streams to be made available after the meeting has finished to be viewed later.

It will not cost the City any more money to archive the live streams.

Deputy Roslyn Harley resisted live streaming the briefing sessions before it commenced.

Council will decide on archiving at its September 19 meeting.
