Local Governments provide information
By Anita Hales


September 23, 2007

For those who may not be aware of resources on where they may obtain information, I respectfully suggest that they take advantage of television broadcasts and re-broadcasts of local meetings on local TV channels.

I think the local governments provide ample opportunity for citizens to be informed of what takes place during meetings.

The local media provides reports on the meetings and the actual meetings are easy to see at your convenience.

KFMJ radio is also making archived audio available on their website although it might take a while for it to appear.

So if you have a need to hear what your government officials are saying, it is available to you.

Local government clerks have recordings of all the meetings as well.

I don't think our officials are doing anything where we can't see it. All you have to do is look and listen. No need to demand additional sources.
