Lyndhurst Twp. pays videographer, provides limited access to videos

Following last year’s adoption of an ordinance restricting video-recording of the Township’s governing body meetings, Lyndhurst Township now pays for the service but has yet to make the videos readily available. The original plan when the Board of Commissioners voted to hire the videographer was to post the videos online on the Township’s official website.  Currently, however, the video recordings are available only via Open Public Records Act request and can take 2-3 weeks to obtain.
