Tell NID to step into the 21st century and commit to live streaming its public meetings and providing online video replay.
At the March 8th board meeting, NID directors voted to keep audio recording public meetings rather than institute a live-stream video recording. The motion from Director Nancy Weber for live streaming died on the floor, even though three community groups requested live-stream and video replay on behalf of the public “in the interest of openness, transparency, and community relations.”
Take action and demand NID follow the example of government transparency set by Nevada County Board of Supervisors and the cities of Grass Valley and Nevada City. Get live streaming set-up now. Audio archives are NOT good enough!
