The town of Vienna long has posted video recordings of Town Council and Planning Commission meetings, but those who wished to review less-formal work sessions of those bodies were out of luck.

That has changed recently, as the town has begun posting on the Web audio recordings of meetings and work sessions of those bodies within 48 hours, said town spokesman Lynne Coan.

Coan said she did not know if recordings would be made of all the town’s boards and commission meetings and work sessions, but said the policy applies to major bodies such as the Town Council, Planning Commission and Board of Architectural Review.

Council member Pasha Majdi said the new policy is the latest in a series of victories for transparency within the town government.

“Everybody’s really making major strides,” he said.
