City considers new system for spectators

The projector in city hall’s council chambers gave up the ghost a few weeks ago and is currently in for repairs

The show must go on.

The projector in city hall’s council chambers gave up the ghost a few weeks ago and is currently in for repairs. It is used regularly to project portions of the council agenda on a large screen for members of the gallery to view, and for power point presentations.

Repairs weren’t possible locally so it has been sent off to Ontario to the manufacturer, reported city administrator Carl Bannister to council recently.

“In the meantime we’re looking at contingency plans to purchase one outright.”

He requested up to $10,000 out of reserves, which council approved.

Coun. Chad Eliason said he thinks it’s important to have a new video system, noting the existing one is nine years old. He suggested looking at other audio- visual options rather than just the projector.
