Video- Why You Can't Hear The Council at Glen Rose Town Council Meetings -August 23 2010

24 August 2010 at 6:12:08 PM

We've discussed the issue of why

Well, Mysteries were SOLVED last night. Chris Bryant, who deserves a huge pat on the back for this, asked for Peggy Busch to put a digital recorder on the upcoming 2011 budget and she WILL.

Also, I've wondered whether the microphones even work. Well, they do, IF the people speak into them, but only for the purposes of making a tape recording. Because there are no SPEAKERS in the room. So, even IF the people on town council speak into the microphones, unless they happen to be speaking loud enough for the audience to hear, mike or no mike, the audience can't hear them clearly. Johnny Martin brought up the need to get speakers for the room and he also deserves a hearty clap on the back. Even last night somebody in the room stood up and asked Mayor Miller to speak up.

Techie info. Suppose you miss a meeting and you want to go hear what went on. What you woudl have to do is go down to the city office, put the tape into the tape recorder and either record the tape on the same machine to another tape or hook in a digital recorder that YOU own to record the tape to a digital recorder. EITHER WAY, you must listen to the entire tape recording in order to make the copy. If, in other words, the meeting lasted 2 hours, then you will be waiting 2 hours to make your copy. But you will also be changing the tape during that time because if the meeting goes over x amount of time, the tape had to be turned over or a new one put in. (Naturally you will probably be missing a few minutes of the meeting when the tape had to be changed in the tape player while the meeting was going on). With a digial recorder, on the other hand, nobody has to change any tapes and the entire meeting is recorded without any pause, because there is always a lot of disk space available on the recoder. Then, when someone wants a copy, all the city secretary or whoever is doing it, has to do is connect a cable to the computer and copy/upload the file from the digital recorder to the computer. Takes seconds to do and the time previously it took to record from a long tape is OVER. The file could then be uploaded ot the city of Glen Rose website for everyone to get or sent via ameil or copies to a CD, etc. Anyway, it's really wonderful that the city will have it in their budget and it will make the process of open government for all citizens that much better.

And I have to reiterate my point about people being MADE to go to the podium. Since we know for sure from last night that the microphones are ONLY for the tape recording, they not only can't pick up the people at the dais very well if they don't speak into them but it's alwo why, on the tape, sometimes it's really hard to hear what the fool anyone in the audience had to say. At least if people are, again, MADE to go to the podium, they will be recorded into the official recording of the city so that others can hear what they said even if they didn't attend.Mayor Miller said last night that because it was a large crowd people should go to the podium. No, has nothing to do with whether it's a large crowd or not, it has to do with WHERE THE MICROPHONE IS.
