Report on Live Streaming of Full Council

Motion from Councillor McLoughlin Healy 20/1117 – That the council follow the lead of other county councils around the country who have enhanced the transparency and accountability of their councils while protecting against misrepresentations of what happens in the chamber and introduce either streaming or transcription of council meetings.

The Protocol Committee considered a final report on this item at their March meeting and agreed that this report be circulated to the members of the full council along with confirmation of the cost involved which is approximately €15,000 per annum excluding the set up costs, and that this item be listed for consideration at the April meeting.
