City Council meetings are now shown on North Hempstead TV
Replays of last board meeting aired 7 days a week to increase transparency with residents
Keeping one of the promises made during her recent State of the Town address, North Hempstead Town Supervisor Jennifer DeSena proudly announces that residents can now watch replays of the last town council meeting on the city government’s access television channel, North Hempstead TV. Now, for the first time in the city’s history, residents will be able to see their government in action as replays of the latest city council meeting will air seven days a week, at convenient times for residents to tune in. and see how their government works.
“I am so proud that North Hempstead TV will be showing reruns of our last council meeting because I believe in the need for open, honest and transparent government,” DeSena said. “Broadcasting replays of City Council meetings will give residents better access to see how their city is run and be more aware of the many challenges we face as a city. This will be especially helpful for our older residents who may not have a computer or internet connection or are not tech savvy enough to tune into our live Thursday evening meetings.
During the State of the City Address, DeSena outlined a number of transparency initiatives she would put in place to increase accountability to ratepayers and run city government in an open, honest, and transparent manner. Replays of the last City Council meeting will air seven days a week, at 7 p.m. Friday through Monday evenings and at 8 a.m. Tuesday through Thursday mornings.
This is a marked improvement on previous administrations, as in the more than 15 years that North Hempstead has operated a television studio, it has never broadcast its board meetings. North Hempstead TV can be found on channels 18 and 65 on Optimum (channel 65 in incorporated villages) and channel 46 on Verizon.
