At its May 17th, 2012 meeting, the Salt Spring Island Local Trust Committee requested that staff investigate providing the public with an audio recording of its regular business meetings as a less expensive option to the combined audio and video recording pilot that has been in place since January 2012.
This new pilot project’s primary objective will be to provide an audio recording of the Salt Spring Island Regular Business Meetings' proceedings to the Salt Spring Islands Trust website.
