Spokane's local government cable TV station is improving its live offerings.
Starting on Jan. 19, CityCable 5 will begin airing live the monthly meetings of the Spokane Transit Authority board.
The transit board has some big votes in the coming months, including deciding which routes and services will scaled back to deal with budget problems.
Spokane's Communication Director Marlene Feist, who oversees CityCable 5, said City Councilwoman Amber Waldref, an STA board member, requested the live coverage.
STA is the fourth governing board that the station will carry live on a regular basis. The others are the Spokane County Commission, Spokane City Council and the Spokane Park Board. The channel occassionally carries Spokane Plan Commission meetings live.
STA's meetings are at 5:30 p.m. on the third Wednesday of each month.
