Is EDDC using the best technology to keep democratic local governance going during lockdown?
Looks like EDDC is still using Skype when the rest of government is using the more appropriate Zoom.
It is expected that the vast majority of meetings will not need to go ahead because they are not dealing with essential matters during this time of crisis. However, as of now, the council will review the need to hold meetings on a rolling basis. Moving forwards, as a matter of priority, and subject to what Government permits local authorities to do, we are looking at ways of conducting urgent/important meetings remotely using Skype and/or conference calling.
