The Worcester County Commissioners’ meetings will be available for public online viewing soon, through a plan discussed recently.
The plan, approved March 3, calls for a single ceiling-mounted camera, one linked to a system that would have each commissioner push a button that signals when they wish to speak, according to county spokeswoman Kim Moses. There’s no defined cost yet, but the board has discussed budgeting $150,000 to $200,000 toward the expense.
The commissioners likely will decide at an upcoming meeting what equipment to purchase. From there, installation of hardware and configuration of software will be done in-house, and installed as soon as possible, Moses said. Videos will be uploaded to the county’s official website.
