On Monday 16th April The Alice Springs Town Council Finance Committee discussed the rebroadcast of public council meetings on 8CCC Community radio.

Council meetings are currently recorded with audio being uploaded to the Meeting’s page on the council website.

Some proposed benefits of the broadcast are:
• Greater awareness and engagement of the community
• Access to council meetings for those unable to attend
• Council is seen as being innovative and reaching out to engage with its community

There was also discussion on live streaming of the council meetings through the ASTC website.

Council is seeking further information on both proposals.
