Within the next couple of months, residents could have more access to Deschutes County Commissioner's work sessions. Commissioners have decided to spend $42,000 to install audio and video equipment to allow their meetings to be streamed on the Internet and broadcast on cable. “We really wanted to be able to offer the ability for folks to have better access to their local elected officials.” The meetings will also be archived on line and anyone will be able to watch them "on-demand". Commissioner Tammy Baney says in the future, equipment could also allow people from other locations to video conference into the commissioner's meeting as well. Administrator Dave Kanner says the money has already been set aside in a capital projects fund from previous years.
