Wingecarribee Shire Council live stream debate on hold

It is something residents of the Wingecarribee Shire are in favour of.

But a decision about live streaming council meetings will not be made until next year.

A motion was put forward by councillor Gordon Markwart to trial live streaming at the November 8 meeting.

However the motion was noted after Cr Markwart said after discussions with council staff he needed to do more research before the motion was properly debated.

“I do believe it’s something we have to do in the future,” he said.

“The community says it wants to be more connected to council- this is a way to do it. We should let the community come into this ivory tower and see what we do.”
