TUPELO, Miss. (AP) - The city of Tupelo is renting camera and sound equipment to continue recording and broadcasting council meetings.

Comcast broadcasts two council meetings a month live and replays them on Tuesday nights during off weeks. When City Hall was built in 2002, the equipment was state-of-the-art.

The Northeast Mississippi Daily Journal reports (https://bit.ly/1fazGipd ) the aging equipment broke down recently and the Allen Pegues and Premium Productions offered to provide his high definition equipment to continue broadcasting and recordings at a fee of $200 per meeting.

Pegues is familiar to the council. For years, Comcast has contracted him to operate the existing camera equipment at a fee of $250 per meeting.

The council is expected to approve the short-term contract with Premium Productions next week.
