TRAVERSE CITY, Mich. (AP) -- The board of Northwestern Michigan College is considering whether to start making video recordings of its meetings after many years of relying solely on written notes.

The community college's board is scheduled to meet Monday morning to discuss the change. The college board also doesn't use audio recordings.

Board member Cheryl Gore Follette tells the Traverse City Record-Eagle that she asked to put the question of recording meetings on the board's Monday study session agenda. She says "having the meeting recorded would be helpful for everyone" and would help her in cases where her memory fails her.

The board has discussed recording its meetings several times. Board member Kennard Weaver says he opposes recordings because they "can stifle full discussion."
