Lansdale residents, who can’t get out for Borough Council meetings, will soon have another way to stay informed.
Borough Council has approved the purchase of video equipment that will be used to record meetings for playback on a local cable television channel. Money to cover the $27,000 cost is coming from the franchise agreement between Comcast and the Borough. Council Member Tom Work cast the only vote against the purchase. He says the money could be spent more wisely.
“I think we’ve got better things to spend money on in this Borough, like filling potholes and other infrastructure improvements that better serve the people of the town than making a video of our meetings.”
Audio recordings of Lansdale Borough Council meetings have been available on the Borough web site since the start of this year.
