Web-casting – Another step forward
Good news on web-casting. Because the amendment to the original motion on expanding web-casting to other meetings like Cabinet was so poorly thought-out, equipment is being installed that will enable the Cabinet meeting on the 13th October to be web-cast. The amendment did not say it could not be installed. You see what happens when a ill thought out plan is made up on the hoof. See previous post HERE
Hooray might be added, but there is a sting in the tail. Namely, that this equipment cannot be used for any other meeting than Cabinet. Unless this motion is brought back to Council to be changed. This is made a little harder because of the 6 month rule. That rule is no motion/debate can be brought back within six months unless its supported by at least 20 Members.
At least another meeting at Cornwall Council is more open and accessible.
