Televising council meetings?

Most city councils and many other government agency meetings around Orange County have long been televised.

Stanton has been an exception, but that could soon change.

At Tuesday’s meeting of the city council, one item for consideration is to explore the possibility of becoming the latest  of municipal governing bodies to face the camera.

The recommended action from city staff is to proceed with a 12-month pilot program starting Dec. 1 to live stream council meetings on the Zoom virtual meaning platform and report back to the council at the end of the program with data about public participation.

Also on the agenda for Tuesday’s meeting is an update on  how the city has spent and will spend its share of funds provided by the American Rescue  Plan Act, passed to attempt to offset the economic impact on local government from the COVID-19 pandemic.

The council meets at its chambers in the Stanton City Hall at 7800 Katella Ave. The call to order is set for 6:30 p.m.
