County meetings aired via video taped

All County Legislative meetings should be video taped and aired to inform taxpayers of issues before them and their decision. Most people are unable to attend these meetings and it would also insure the legislators' getting to their agends in a timely fashion. In stead of having attendees wait ungodly hours before they start their sessions.
