NEW ALBANY — ANIMAL SHELTER FUNDING

The council approved by a 5-1 vote to approve $110,391 to be placed in the New Albany-Floyd County Animal Shelter budget for 2013. The money was part of the budget approved by the council last year that had not yet been paid to the shelter. It will be taken out of the riverboat fund.

Councilman Steve Burks voted against the measure.

AUDIO-VIDEO RECORDING

The council unanimously approved an ordinance which will allow council meetings to be video and audio recorded and placed on the county website. Striegel introduced the ordinance. The new software will also record the minutes.

“The citizens should be aware of what goes on in council meetings,” he said.

The cost of the equipment and software for the meeting room at the Pine View Government Center is $17,000 which will come out of the auditor’s illegal homestead settlement fund. There will also be an annual $4,000 maintenance fee.

Clark said the county will still be saving money since his office has gone from 10 to nine employees and he has no plans to fill the vacancy.

“I used to have a person in our office take two or three days to do the minutes. This will allow me to do the functions and do it better and allow the county to save money,” Clark said.

Striegel said all boards which use the meeting room, like the Floyd County Parks Department,  will also have the opportunity to record meetings for their websites.

“Now people will be able to access these meetings from their homes via the Internet,” he said.
