On Audio Files Put on Somervell County government Website for Citizen Access Part 2

12 May 2009 at 9:04:19 AM

Here's the first part of where I have written about it.  

Yesterday, I went to the City of Glen Rose meeting, which I will post later on today in audio and a vid clip or two, but I didn't go to the Somervell County Commissioner's Court. I figured I would go get the audio later on, and attempted to do so in the afternoon. I ran into a problem, however. For some reason, the audio recording equipment being used yesterday had not consistently recorded all of the meeting; NOT the fault of the clerk attempting to record AND the IT person at the county is apparently looking at the problem.

That said, I continue to think it's not only a good idea for the local government agencies to post audio of their meetings, but it's certainly not without precedent at other local, state or federal levels. (Take the Texas Legislature Online, for merely one example). I saw Judge Walter Maynard last night at the city meeting and asked him about it. "No", he said "We aren't ever going to do that". I was a little taken aback by how adamantly and abruptly he said that, but perhaps it's because my question came when there wasn't much time for discussion. Since Judge Maynard doesn't vote on the county commissioners court, seems to me this would be a good question to bring up to the commissioners to ask for them to discuss and vote on.
