WILLOUGHBY Council has officially moved into the digital age.
In a move that brings Willoughby into line with Lane Cove and North Sydney, all ordinary council meetings will now be webcast live on the internet.
Mayor Gail Giles-Gidney said she hopes the move will attract more people to take part in council proceedings.
“We want to encourage the community to become more involved with council meetings and decisions and let people know they’re welcome to attend in person or watch online,” she said.
“(The move) demonstrates council’s open and transparent approach and continued commitment to community engagement and input into council decisions.
“Webcasting of meetings is something many other councils across Australia have already implemented and I’m pleased Willoughby will also now offer this to our community.”
Council meetings take place every second and fourth Monday of the month. Members of the public can watch proceedings live or access a full recording afterwards.
