The budget for broadcasting and otherwise disseminating videos of the City Council meetings is not the problem - the secretive policies of the City Manager is where the problem lies. Public records are not generally accessible at the City of Colton and the legal requirements for responding to requests are simply ignored. That could be a problem with the City Clerk, but I suspect it is rather an edict from on high. Limiting distribution of the City Council videos is just a symptom of a much bigger problem. The warrants, for example, no longer appear in the agenda packet so the public cannot know what sums are being paid out to vendors, consultants or attorneys. Apparently there is some concern that the people of Colton can add and substract and that could be dangerous. This city needs to abide by the open meeting and public records legal requirements that apply everywhere instead of hiding behind a wall of silence. Cassie MacDuff is right.
