No more Facebook Live for Massena Town Board meetings
MASSENA — The Town of Massena board will no longer broadcast its regular meetings on Facebook Live, citing technical difficulties with the audio feed as chief among the reasons for the change.
The board, which will convene today (Tuesday, July 21) at 4:30 p.m., regularly broadcasted its monthly public meetings on the platform for several months.Town Supervisor Stephen O’Shaughnessy told North Country This Week Wednesday that due to several issues, notably poor sound quality cited by some viewers, the board will no longer record and post the meetings on the site.
The meetings at the town hall at 60 Main St. will still be open to in-person attendance by the public however.
Among the agenda items expected to be discussed or approved by the board are: the resignation of Jeanna Matthews from Massena Library, a presentation on Massena Emergency Management Officer for the town, setting a public hearing on a moratorium on cryptocurrency mining, contract approval for boiler cleanings at library and town hall, payment approval for work at the airport, and approval of a contract with Majestic Fireworks to provide fireworks for the Massena Fishing Derby.
