GREENFIELD — Almost six months since city government meetings were taken off Comcast Channel 19, city officials say more people are turning to the city’s website to catch up on local politics.

Channel 19 went dark Sept. 1, 2013, after a partnership between the city of Greenfield and Greenfield-Central School Corp. unraveled.

While Greenfield-Central High School students had been recording local meetings and putting them on the TV channel, city employees are now left managing their own equipment and putting videos on greenfieldin.org for the public to see.

Nick Riedman, Greenfield information technology director, said he still hopes to eventually get city meetings back on TV for public transparency, but at least for now, placing them online is the best the city can do.
