“tremendous positive” | Just two of the words in today’s LNP – Always Lancaster editorial applauding Lancaster City’s recent move to record council meetings. In the editorial is this, too: Meanwhile, there are no two ways about this topic: We applaud Lancaster officials for arranging to livestream City Council meetings. It’s a win for transparency and for making local government proceedings available to more residents. And we tip our hats to city resident and former mayoral candidate Tony Dastra, who had been livestreaming City Council meetings since February 2017 on his own initiative. His laudable efforts seem to have paved the way to the city to now take on that role.”

On demand, too | Lancaster’s council meetings are online too.

Coming in Columbia, too | Columbia will begin live-streaming and placing videos of Council meetings at its Website too. At the February 12, meeting a test recording was to have happened but the camera crashed to the floor from its mount at the rear of the council chambers.
