Despite the small hiccup of home viewers not being able to hear what was said, the city of Dawsonville on Monday debuted a new video streaming and recording system and for the first time ever broadcast a city council meeting live on Facebook. In March the council voted to have WH Platts install audio, video and lighting elements to the main meeting room so that the city could record and broadcast its meetings. The room already had an audio system, but David Strupp with WH Platts said the only thing his company could likely salvage were the microphones. WH Platts was the low bidder and has installed similar systems at Hall County, the city of Gainesville and the city of Johns Creek. The cost of the system was around $60,000.
