Lula renovates City Hall, adds technology for streaming

By Rob Moore Reporter

The Lula City Council returned its meetings to City Hall last week and expects to begin using new technological additions soon.

Mayor Joe Thomas said he is pleased with how the space turned out.

“The space itself has been remodeled and it’s got new carpet, new paint, new podium,” Thomas said. “Like I said, the biggest thing we look forward to is audiovisual. We’re going to start broadcasting live meetings.”

New televisions, cameras, and individual microphones have been added to ensure the broadcasts are clear.

Where those city council meetings will be streamed remains to be determined, but Thomas said the city is looking forward to being able to livestream its meetings through its own means.

The entrance to the council meeting area now is from the City Hall Annex/Hall County Sheriff’s Office Precinct side of the building.
