The council chamber for the Cape Breton Regional Municipality in Sydney has become more hi-tech.
Remote controlled cameras are being installed in the chamber where municipal councilors hold their public meetings.
Council had been holding meetings at different locations throughout the CBRM this summer because of the renovations.
John MacKinnon, head of the CBRM's technology and communication department, said a single staff member will control three remote control cameras and send out video that will be available not only to the usual TV outlets but on personal computers as well.
"We will be able to live-stream on the internet, and we will also be providing a feed to the current service providers for cable which would be Eastlink and Seaside," he said.
"We're going to be storing the council meeting for people to be able to view after. So if you have something going on the evening of the council meeting or the day of the council meeting, that evening or at your leisure at home you'll be able to view and see what's going on at the council meeting."
Municipal clerk Bernie White said the next council meeting will be later in the month than usual but he's hopeful the new system will be fully operational.
"With any kind of a new project, there may be small little bugs that'll be worked out, but our plans are to get our staff trained in the next couple of weeks and hopefully to be up and running by September 24."
White said if the technology is not ready on that date, the meeting will proceed as normal in the council chamber anyway.
