Livestreaming and recording of county council meetings in Kerry have been suspended.
The management of Kerry County Council decided to suspend all live-streaming and recording of council meetings as they feared Kerry county councillors would be impertinent and say more than they should, reports Breakingnews.ie
The CEO of Kerry County Council Moira Murrell said staff did not require meetings to be recorded and statutory guidelines for online meetings did not allow for it. The meetings administrator did not require recording and that is still the case,”
Independent Councillor Brendan Cronin, mayor of Killarney, said recording would be beneficial for staff and for accuracy.
The recording of meetings would protect council and the councillors and make council business “more transparent”, said Councillor Johnny Healy-Rae.
