The following video was recorded on an iPad at the work session meeting.  This is because the City of Blue Springs does not currently record and broadcast work sessions.  Note that the audio is complete, but the video is not managed like is possible with the camera equipment permanently installed in the room.  I recorded this session at the request of numerous constituents that were unable to attend the meeting and wanted to hear the council’s rational for what ever decisions might be made at the meeting.

Hopefully in the future we will broadcast these meetings using the city’s equipment.  I will certainly be advocating that during the August 2013 budget session for the 2013-2014 year and continuing forward.  Giving our citizens the opportunity to understand the rationale for the decisions we make was one of the original reasons for televising our council meetings.  Work sessions should not be treated any differently.

Sincerely,

Jeff Quibell
