Having no projector in Conference Room 204 of Monroe Town Hall has made PowerPoint presentations difficult during meetings, and land use boards sometimes have problems showing plans on a screen during hearings held in the Council Chambers.
Funding was approved in the current budget for wall mounted projectors in both rooms. On Friday, a member of the town's custodial staff installed one in the conference room.
"In this day and age, we need the technology to show PowerPoints," said Jack Zamary, director of technology/operations.
Zamary said it costs about $1,000 for each system, which includes the projector, the wall mount and the screen.
Something else that's being discussed as a future consideration is an improved sound system for the microphones Town Council members use in the Chambers, according to Zamary.
