Published DateLACONIA — Newspaper readers have recently been treated, and, perhaps, enticed, by the press reports of what transpired at the joint meeting of the Belknap County Convention and the Belknap County Commission this past Tuesday night, February 19.
According to one reporter [Michael Kitch, Page One of the 2/20 Daily Sun], Representative Dennis Fields of Sanbornton "noted that neither the commissioners nor the taxpayers could know what we're doing if we meet in small groups, between public meetings to discuss our plans.'" Fields summed it up "How can that be doing the people's business in a transparent way?"
Thanks to the Region's Public Access cable-vision station LRPA, there is some transparency. LRPA had a crew present and filming at the meeting. Viewers of LRPA will be able to form their own opinions after witnessing the 3-hour meeting for themselves.
The first playing of the joint County meeting will start at 7:30 p.m. on Saturday on Metrocast's Channel 26. The show will re-play many times over the following weeks. Check http://www.lrpa.org/custom_shows.php for the times of subsequent re-plays.
