LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI) — Soon, you'll be able to watch Tippecanoe County government in action from the comfort of your own home.
County Commissioners approved a contract Tuesday to set up a camera in the Tippecanoe Room so people can view meetings live from their phones or computers.
Commissioner Tracy Brown said this is critical, especially in today's world.
"Many people don't understand what goes on in local government. Specifically county government. Again, access can sometimes be difficult because of the timing of the meetings and no matter when we have the meetings there will be someone who can't be there," said Brown.
Brown said this will help with convenience and transparency. If all goes well, the next commissioners meeting in two weeks will be streamed live.
