LIVE STREAMING OF COUNCIL MEETINGS

Bass Coast Shire Council continues oppose the introduction of live streaming .

Live streaming is recognised by the Victorian Ombudsman and and at least 20 Victorian Councils to be an important service for the community.


Live streaming would be a positive step towards greater transparency and community engagement in civic processes.

But despite having voted in favour of a live streaming trial in June 2018, just weeks later in July Councillors voted 5-4 in favour of a rescission motion, thereby scuttling plans to introduce the live streaming trial.

The meeting minutes show that Crs. Tessari, Kent, Ellis, Le Serve, and Fullarton did not support the introduction of the live streaming trial. 

During a later public question time BCRRA asked if the 5 Councillors would publish their reasons for refusing to support this important transparency measure, however they would not.

Despite the current Councils unwillingness to embrace live streaming, BCRRA will continue to advocate for its introduction.



KERBSIDE WASTE COLLECTION - 2019 

Now the summer holiday activities are over, and we heard your experiences with Bass Coast Shire Council's waste services. You told us that whilst keeping the fortnightly landfill collection schedule over the peak summer season has made it a bit of a challenge for some, only areas with large numbers of holidaymakers and visitors have struggled significantly. 
Most of the shire's population have had no issues.
