Annapolis City Meetings To Be Streamed Online

| January 29, 2014 | 0 Comments

cloudcompouteAnnapolis Mayor Michael Pantelides announced that City Council meetings are now available online through live streaming.

“Streaming the meetings is an essential move to make it easier for our residents to know what government is doing 24/7,” Mayor Pantelides said. “This enhancement allows our citizens to stay informed, educated, and up to date because it is real-time information our residents and business owners can access anywhere.”

Anyone with an Internet connection can watch government meetings live on a computer or mobile device. Users will also be able to access archived meeting videos along with relevant supporting materials, like staff reports, meeting agendas and minutes. Additionally, the content will be keyword searchable, making the process of finding information much easier. All meeting videos will be time-stamped to allow viewers to skip directly to the agenda item of interest.

To view agendas, legislative files and videos, go to www.annapolis.gov and click on the link under Announcements. As the City tests this new system, we encourage public input. Please send questions, comments, and concerns to Hilary Roggio Raftovich at [email protected].

The meetings will continue to be aired live on City TV, channel 34 for Verizon customers and on channel 99/100 for Comcast subscribers.

Granicus Inc. is the service provider and offers transparency solutions used by more than 1000 government agencies across the country.
