Citizens Group to Post High-quality Video of Town Meetings

Town Board and Planning Board to be included

The Citizens of Philipstown group is making high-definition video of all town board and planning meetings available at its website. The group played a key role during Philipstown's recent and lengthy debate over a new zoning law, in drawing public attention to the new law's impact.

The group's news release follows:

The Citizens of Philipstown.org is making available through its website unedited High Definition video stream of the Town Board and Planning Board monthly meetings.  This is a free service to the community.

COP President Tony Bardes said: "This is another pioneering public service.  I remember COP also being the first nongovernmental organization to post on line, within hours of becoming public, the different versions of the maps and drafts of the law during the Zoning initiative.  I am glad that citizens of the community will be able to watch at their own convenience, high quality unedited video stream any time, day or night, of the most critical meetings that take place in our Town."

COP desires to foster a healthy dialogue and involvement of the citizens in the democratic process and participation in public affairs of our community.

The video stream can be accessed anytime at COP's website: www.citizensofphilipstown.org.

Be Informed, Participate!
