Middletown Open Government is a non-partisan community group. The group’s goal is to improve transparency in the governance of Middletown Township and to increase residents’ access to their local government through the Township’s broadcasting of its meetings. Though many other towns video-record or even livestream their public meetings, Middletown Township Committee meetings are currently not video recorded or broadcast by the Township. The Committee’s Republican majority refuses to do so, even though there is dedicated funding available for this purpose. As a public service, volunteers video record the meetings and make them available online.
