Following the disappointment at the content and lack of debate in Wrexham, a quick search reveals a number of councils broadcasting most or all meetings. One early on in the search was Conwy, with one example showing a comprehensive public debate by councillors on the future merger of councils, and the dilemma being debated in Wales.
Various committees are shown debating issues and making decisions.
Some other Councils across England and Wales also have electronic voting and the votes of each and every councillor is shown. How our individual Councillors vote on issues is important to electors, they are our representatives at the end of the day.
Electronic voting sounds idealistic – those of us however watch the Council antics with some ‘enthusiasm’ would note that a system such as this would be relatively cheap as the most number of voting pads required would be 4!! as I don’t believe that sheep have the ability to use such technology.
Seriously though the votes on the Executive before the latest kerfuffle was always 7 – 3. The joining of the Independents together to form the one Group (or Group within a Group) shows they will only need 1 voting Pad that just leaves the Labour and Plaid Party.
