Monongalia County Commission Meetings to be Televised

Posted: Updated:

Monongalia County residents may soon be able to watch their county commission at work on cable television.

The commission will pursue broadcasting its weekly meetings on Government Access Channel 15, possibly starting in September.

Commissioner Tom Bloom said it's important for people to get meeting information when they can't attend in person.

"It can be very difficult, today we have it at 10 a.m., we might have it at 1 p.m. Many people work, and the important thing is I believe that the county commission is an extension of the people. They elected us, and they need to know what's going on in the county and why we make decisions we have," Bloom said.

Bloom has also helped initiate podcasts of commission meetings.
