Lights, camera ... City Council

GREENVILLE — Will local residents tune in to a video feed of the meetings of the Greenville City Council?

The Council is preparing to spend about $30,000 to find out.

The Council is set to consider passing an ordinance during Tuesday’s meeting, to allow for the video streaming of meetings. The Council’s vote is scheduled during Tuesday’s regular session, starting at 6 p.m. in the Municipal Building, 2821 Washington Street.

The proposed ordinance calls for the purchase video software and equipment with Rushworks Automation and Production Systems, as well as an annual maintenance agreement.

In a memo to the Council, Interim City Manager/Director of Public Works Massoud Ebrahim noted the city currently uses Rushworks equipment and software to provide instant public notification of information via the city’s dedicated televised cable channel.

“It was determined that it would be prudent for the City to utilize Rushworks software, equipment and maintenance for video streaming the Council Meetings, as well,” Ebrahim said.

Ebrahim said the city had received a proposal from the company, with a total price of $30,361 for the equipment and software and $2,263 per year for the annual maintenance agreement.
