    So tonight’s meeting was to say “interesting.” If the counter for You Tube is correct the most people who watched at any time was 23. I noticed the counter would go up and then down quickly at times. Did this mean their internet connection was too weak to maintain the connection? Was the reason the numbers were so low due to internet or a lack of interest? I hope more than 23 people in this county care about what is going on. One thing that I know people didn’t like was the limited amount of information as to the expenditures voted and approved by the board tonight. Having experience with budgets, proposals and bidding procedures, I understand work sessions are held and things like this are discussed in depth during those meetings. I really believe our citizens would appreciate and understand more if the board meetings were more open with these presentations and allow more input from the public. I may not have made my friends who are current commissioners happy with that suggestion but I stand by it and know from talking to many citizens they want to know a little more of the details in how our county operates.

    • Hi James. I’m not sure why the counter for views went up and down unless it was a “Live Stream” and you’re right about the number of views being low. I didn’t know anything about it…. someone needs to get the word out on the YouTube channel for Heard County and possibly more people would Subscribe and automatically get notifications on the timeline of the meetings and ability to view them Live within a minute with any Smartphone. Comments should be turned on and viewers could have any reasonable questions or concerns addressed…. I don’t that’s ever going to happen;(
