County Executive Dan Onorato is taking his town hall meetings to the web. Thursday morning at 8:30 Onorato will turn on the web camera used to broadcast county council meetings and begin to answer questions that have been emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org. The webcast can be found on the county website. Onorato spokesperson Kevin Evanto says the executive expects the webcast to last about 30 minutes but if the questions are rolling in he is ready to go longer. Several questions have already been submitted. The webcast will be archived. Evanto says if the webcast goes well they will schedule more in the future. Two classrooms will be hooked into the webcast. One in the Hill District and in South Fayette.
