Newark City Council still is trying to find a way to televise more than just its council meetings twice monthly.

On Monday, council's rules committee discussed possible ways to record council's committee meetings, which include most of the discussions about legislation.

"To learn what we're doing, we ought to do it (televise) committees," Councilman John Uible said.

Council has sponsors who currently pay Newark High School broadcast-video students to tape and edit two council meetings monthly. The meetings then are shown on cable channel 19.

Councilman Doug Marmie questioned council's ability to pay to televise more meetings.

When asked if the city should try to invest funding in televising meetings, none of the rules committee members spoke in favor.

Rules committee chair Carol Floyd agreed to talk to the city's information-technologies department and ask if a camera could be set up to record committee meetings. She is expected to report back to the committee on costs and options.
