Can't make it to a town council meeting? Don't despair. All council meetings are now available online at

While the township council works out all of the details with Cablevision, resident Gary Steele has been recording every work session and regular meeting since January and putting them online. Now, there is a dedicated website for West Milford's meetings.

Steele, who worked in the television production business for years, has said his goal is to get a public access television station up and running for the township as soon as possible. He, and many others, want more than the couple of meetings shown each month on cable channel 77. So, he posted the meetings on Vimeo at first and this week, moved them all over to the dedicated website.

The site is easy to use. Type '' into the URL; results won't come up if it is put into a search engine. Steele said it will be propagated to Google soon but it isn't yet. The home page appears with the latest council meeting visible. Click on it to view.

To the right of the screen is a list of categories, including MUA, High School, Civics Club and Vintage Council among them. Steele has put other videos on the site in those categories. He is hoping to get current MUA meetings recorded and on the site. The vintage council meetings go back to 2008.

On Monday, June 16 at 7 p.m., the Civics Club is hosting an informative meeting dealing with the township's cable television and public access. Members of the Jersey Access Group (JAG) will speak, explaining how local groups can use the access channel.

Eventually, the township will have a 24/7 public access television station, which will be channel 77, according to Steele. It's part of the franchise agreement between Cablevision and the township where Cablevision provides $90,000 over a period of 15 years to help the township set up the station. When that happens, all meetings recorded will be played on the station, as well as other events around town, and then be archived on the website.
