SULPHUR, La. (AP) - A Sulphur company says it can get sponsors to pay to broadcast City Council meetings and stream them online, so the city won't have to.
Mayor Chris Duncan tells The American Press that the one-year contract accepted Monday by the council will save the city $6,000 a year. Video Creations and Productions LLC says it will get sponsors to cover the $500 a month charge.
The city now pays $400 a month to have meetings taped for broadcast on the C-Gov channel.
Duncan says Video Creations will tape meetings for those broadcasts, update and redo the community video on the city's website, and stream meetings on the website.
