Doylestown Twp. will try streaming meeting videos on the web
The Doylestown Township supervisors are going to try streaming videos from their meetings on the Web for a year.
The township will pay IQM2 about $3,648, including the cost of equipment and Web portal fees, for the streaming service.
If the supervisors find that enough residents are watching the videos online to make it financially worthwhile, they will continue streaming videos after the end of the trial year.
Kurt Krause, chairman of the township’s telecommunications advisory board, said the township will get about $3,000 in franchise fees from its cable deal with Verizon. The franchise fees and money from the sale of old equipment should cover the costs of the trial year.
Township Manager Stephanie Mason said the board hopes to start streaming videos in the fall.
