THOMPSON-NICOLA REGIONAL DISTRICT – It will cost close to $25,000 to offer an efficient system providing live streaming video of board meetings, as well as a way to complete conference calls and training with members for more remote areas of the district.

Upfront costs of $20,000-25,000 for equipment and installation is expected and annual service fees of about $1,000 are expected to be offset easily by reduced travel costs and the reduction of carbon emissions from that reduced travel.

By offering the live streaming broadcast the district hopes more members of the public will engage, no matter what part of the district they live in. Better transparency and accountability as well as cost-effective community engagement are all key goals of the TNRD that will be met by live streaming.

If the board approves the scope and costs of the project installation will begin this summer with the first live broadcast set to begin in the fall.

Kamloops and many other city councils already offer live streaming, though the Regional District of North Okanagan and the Regional District of Okanagan-Similkameen both do not offer live streaming.
