Online viewers of Temple City’s city council meetings will need to turn to a new website, Assistant to the City Manager Gary Flod announced Thursday.

“The address for viewing City Council meetings over the Internet live or through re-plays has changed,” Flod wrote in the November 19, 2009 weekly city manager’s report.

Since June, Community Media of the Foothills, a non-profit organization, has worked with city employees to film and broadcast city council meetings. The first meeting that aired live took place on October 6.

Temple City residents can now watch past meetings online. The most recent meeting can also be seen on the Charter Cable Television Channel, currently Channel 55. Council meetings are played at 7:30 a.m., 12 p.m., and 7:30 p.m.

But beginning in January 2010, the City’s government channel will move from Channel 55 to Channel 3, City Hall previously reported.

CMF will be paid $600 per meeting, according to the agreement signed between the non-profit and the City. Only regular and special city council meetings will be televised and streamed online.

Based in Monrovia, Community Media of the Foothills, has experience with recording city council meetings. The non-profit organization has worked with the cities of Monrovia, San Marino, and Sierra Madre.
