Here is a mid year index of some of the meetings of four of the local governing boards that I've been able to cover this year in my role as a citizen journalist. The boards that I included were, the county commissioners, the planning board, the town aldermen and the TDA. I also cover the meetings of the EDC and will begin covering the county school board meetings when they next meet.
I also deliver a "play by play" of these meetings as they take place. If you wish to see an archive of those, please check out my posts on Google Plus under the #MaconGov hashtag.
As always, I am looking to expand my coverage to more and more boards as I have the time and as advances in technology allow me to process video at a faster pace. One of my goals is to be able to provide gavel to gavel coverage of the meetings of every board in Macon County.
Here is the index of the meetings I have covered so far this year, in reverse chronological order:
Macon County Commissioner Meetings
05-31-2012 Budget Work Session III
05-23-2012 Budget Work Session II
05-21-2012 Budget Work Session I
01-14-2012 Mid Year Work Session
Macon County Planning Board
The Macon County Planning Board has had a turbulent time this year and has not met often, and to add to that, I missed one of the very few meetings they had due to a misunderstanding on my part of when they were supposed to meet. Here is what I have of this year's meetings:
Franklin Town Board of Aldermen
Franklin ABC Store Loan Denied by BB&T
06-04-2011 Public Hearing on Budget
Franklin Aldermen React to Article in Smoky Mountain News
Franklin Tourism Development Authority
07-31-2012 Continuation Meeting
07-24-2012 Special Called Meeting
Not bad for just one guy, eh?
