A Bracebridge councillor who’s helping spearhead more transparency at the District of Muskoka, says taxpayers will soon be better informed.
At present, District Council meetings aren’t available to watch on the internet, which leaves many who can’t attend the meetings in the dark as to all that’s occurring.
Lori Lynn Giaschi-Pacini tells Muskoka News Watch she’s looking forward to later this year when the webcasts of meetings should finally start.
She says the District has budgeted for the service in 2017 and that it’s going to happen.
It will cost just over $7,000 a year to maintain the District webcasts and a one time fee of close to $14,000 to set it up.
Another area council that already webcasts its meetings is Bracebridge.
For years you’ve been able to watch Huntsville Council meetings on TV.
