Budget Meeting Bust

I’d love to tell you what happened at the UNT Budget meeting on Sept 2nd, but I can’t. The Webinar audio was a mess– at least 40% of what the Supervisors and staff said was incomprehensible. There was no chat feature on the Go to Webinar program. I used the ‘raised hand’ button to report the problem but, 20 minutes later, no one had responded.

A key feature of every democracy is that citizens, should they choose to, get to participate. With the technology that is being used, UNT residents are being deliberately shut out.

After the kerfuffle last year about Library funding, one of the Supervisors pointed out that the budget meetings were open to the public – implying it was the public’s responsibility to show up. if they wanted full funding for certain services.

Well, I was there and I know of at least one other person who tried to attend but couldn’t understand what was being discussed.

BECKY BARTLETT COVERS THESE MEETINGS BECAUSE CITIZENS HAVE A RIGHT TO KNOW WHAT THEIR GOVERNMENT IS DOING!!!!

Coming soon – A review of the Sunshine Act.

  1. Same remote access program is used even though the audio is always bad

    If schools and other gvt organizations can find programs that work why can’t Lisa Klem?
