A STREAMING system for the live broadcast of plenary meetings and public acts will be part of a provincial government programme of information technology equipment updates in 66 Almeria local councils.
The Diputacion de Almeria’s New Technology, Security and Property deputy Domingo Fernandez explained the idea is that part of the provincial administration’s €180,000 investment in the technology upgrades goes towards “the implementation of transparency and the improvement of councils’ channels of communication, bringing them closer still to residents.”
What’s more, the deputy commented, the programme represented “the modernization of local administration, meeting the demands of today’s society.”
The main beneficiaries, Fernandez stressed, are the general public.
The Diputacion IT improvement initiative has a financing system similar to that as for the Provincial Plans, municipalities with smaller populations receiving greater financial contributions. There will also be bonuses for localities which have signed up to other Provincial Communications Network services.
Among the councils set to benefit from the Diputacion funding are Albox, Cantoria, Chirivel, Cuevas del Almanzora, Los Gallardos, Huercal-Overa, Macael, Partaloa, Pulpi, Sorbas, Turre, Velez-Blanco and Zurgena.
