Call for Council meetings to be live-streamed for 'transparency'

Aras Chill Dara
A councillor has called on Kildare County Council's monthly meetings to be recorded. Councillor Fiona McLoughlin-Healy said the move should be considered in the interests of transparency. The politician, who was involved in a controversial row in the Council chamber recently, will raise the issue at next week's December meeting in Aras Chill Dara in Naas. In her motion she asks: "In the interests of transparency that we permit recording equipment in the chamber for public meetings. "The cost of live-streaming has reduced significantly and can no longer be considered prohibitive. "And in the event that live streaming be still considered too costly that other options be examined as soon as possible. "The minimum requirement is to permit recording equipment in the Council Chamber for public meetings."
