Past Agendas

CITY COUNCIL AGENDA ITEM NO. 18
Meeting Date: November 28, 2000

Subject/Title: Cable T.V. Broadcast of City Council Meetings

Submitted by: Jon Elam, City Manager

Approved by: Jon Elam, City Manager

RECOMMENDATION 
If the City Council is interested in pursuing the showing of City Council Meetings via the Community Cable Channel, this will be referred to the Telecommunication Subcommittee for review and report back to the City Council.

PREVIOUS ACTION
This has been discussed off and on over the past few years.

BACKGROUND
Councilmember Steve Young requested the item be placed on the agenda. The City has, with its present cable franchise, no specific provisions to require cabling City Council meetings. To do so will require the proper wiring of the Council Chambers, the acquisition of appropriate camera equipment and the training of staff to operate the equipment. During the previous cable franchise negotiations this was identified as a high priority, but discussions got bogged down on other points and the existing franchise was extended for a three-year period. It was/is expected that these discussions will begin again (assuming the Cable T.V. Franchise holder, AT&T Broadband, agrees to do so) after the first of the year.

Presently the Subcommittee consists of Councilmembers Petrovich and Young. Both remain on the City Council to undertake this effort if the Mayor and the City Council wishes work in this direction.
