Dave Burton can see both sides of a change to the Ontario Municipal Act.

The Highlands East Mayor was talking about a provision allowing for electronic participation in council meetings.

Burton feels mayors and councilors should be at meetings in person but says he had to attend council meetings on Skype, which is an online messaging service.

Burton and other county politicians have said they need more information on the electronic meeting provisions of the act and hope to learn more at a conference in January.
