Mt. Pleasant Village Board Recordings

Recording Mt Pleasant Village Board of Trustees meetings.


Welcome to the grand experiment.  My name is Rees Roberts and I have decided to do something useful.  Well, at least get myself out of the house more. 

I made a new years resolution to try and record each Mt. Pleasant Village Board of Trustees meetings on the 2nd and 4th Monday of each month.  Many people can not go to these meetings but it is at those meetings where decisions are made that affect each Mt. Pleasant citizen.  So, in the spirit of open government I thought, as a citizen of Mt. Pleasant, I would record and upload these recordings to Patch.  I am hoping that the logistics work out and there is enough interest in listening to them. 

The first one will be this coming Monday night.  If you have any suggestions or comments just let me know here.

Update:  A very full agenda.  Meeting ended at about 10:30pm.  This deserves your attention.  Many important issues were discussed by the board this evening (1/14/13).   I learned that I could make it easier for the listener to provide time markers so you can go to a place in the agenda of interest.  I will do that starting next time.  But, this should keep your interest.  I certainly didn't see anyone yawn during this meeting.  Important decisions were made and it is important for you to see who did not vote in the majority.  Amazing.


Further Update:

We have successfully linked to the soundtrack.  You may now hear it at the following link:

Just a reminder, this is not a live broadcast but rather a recording. It will be posted later this evening.

Recording has been uploaded. Awaiting moderation approval as of 6:53am. Note: I also uploaded a new agenda as I incorrectly had uploaded the agenda for the January 17th meeting instead of the January 14th meeting.

Note: We are having technical difficulties. Apparently, for some reason, the file I uploaded last night might have been too big. Heather is looking into this for us.

It is confirmed, the reason for not having my recording show up is because Patch has a limitation of 500 megabytes for a video file. I am currently uploading it to another site and will be available soon.
