Toledo becomes second Lincoln County city to begin broadcasting city council meetings live on the internet
This week the Toledo City Council became the second city in Lincoln County to broadcast their meetings live on the internet. And from what we could tell, everything went well. However the “automatic archiving” function so people could watch it later was not triggered due to an audio problem, according to Toledo High School video instructor Peter Vince. Vince supervises the broadcast which is run by his high school students. Vince says anyone with a computer and high speed broadband cable or DSL service can watch the council’s meetings live by going to Justin.TV.com and creating an account. The service is FREE.
Vince says there’s still a few bugs to work out but it’s largely up and running. He says signing up at Justin.TV.com is simple and again, the service is free.
Vince’s high school students also video the Newport City Council. “Newport is not quite ready yet, technically, to go on line,” according to Newport Clerk Recorder Peggy Hawker, but she adds “we’re getting closer.”
