August 6, 2012 MUC: No Round-up Money for Cameras to Televise City Council Meetings But Up To $51,000 for Helen Ross McNabb Lighting and Up To $10,000 for Boys/Girls Club Interior Lighting

At its July meeting, Morristown Utilities Commission (MUC) donated "up to $51,000" of round-up funds to Helen Ross McNabb (HRM) Center for lighting at the planned HRM building:

Then MUC donated "up to $10,000" of round-up funds to the Boys and Girls Club for an indoor energy-efficient lighting upgrade where there is apparently a TVA grant already in place to assist with a project that is estimated to cost $17,000:
After allotting $61,000 of round-up money to HRM and Boys/Girls Club, MUC took up a request from Morristown Mayor Danny Thomas for donation of round-up funds to the City of Morristown for the purchase of cameras to tape council meetings. The tapes would then be broadcast on MUC and Charter Cable government/education channels in the same way that the county has been televising its meetings for nearly 10 years.  After some very interesting discussion and comments, this request was denied:
