Distorted guidance | In Columbia’s proposed new “PROTOCOLS AND RULES OF DECORUM FOR PUBLIC MEETINGS”, the council is proposing: “Recording of Meetings: Members of the public may record or videotape all portions of Borough Council
meetings that are open to the public, provided that their actions do not disturb or interrupt the proceedings. The recording or videotaping must be conducted from the participant’s seat or the area designated by the Borough for recording and must be publicly announced prior to commencing the recording.”
There’s no need to “publicly announce” | Pennsylvania’s Office of Open Records and the Sunshine Act; it simply states: “The Sunshine Act allows meetings to be recorded with an audio recorder or a video recorder. It also allows agencies to issue rules concerning the use of recording devices in order to avoid any disruptions. However, such rules should not be an attempt to prevent a member of the public from recording a meeting.”
