WESTFIELD – Westfield TV and cable Channel 15 will air over eight hours of City Council Finance Subcommittee meetings on June 21.
Media Systems Specialist Peter Cowles said beginning at 12:30 p.m. the subcommittee meetings will be aired in succession, ending at 8:44 p.m.
“Normally we run Council replays on Sunday, but with the budget vote coming up, we decided to run the finance meetings,” said Cowles.
Because of COVID-19, municipal meetings have been hosted online via zoom. While they are open to the public for viewing, there isn’t an opportunity for anyone to attend a meeting in-person at this time.
Cowles said he wants to give residents another chance to listen to budget discussions before the June 23 public hearing on the budget and the June 29 vote.
“Anyone who wants to get educated on the budget should listen,” he said.
The public hearing is at 6 p.m. Monday. The public can participate by calling 1-929-205-6099, meeting ID is 885 4292 2523 and password is 792210. Comments can be sent prior to the meeting to [email protected]
