Citizens who want to watch meetings of their local city or county council ought to be able to do so from the comfort of their own homes.
Now, many people are able to, thanks to a growing movement to broadcast city and county council meetings.
There are a couple of ways local governments can give citizens at home access to these important discussions. Some counties, such as Charleston, broadcast their meetings on cable television. Others, such as Horry, live-stream them on the Internet.
