Council meetings a mouse click away

Council meetings will be available for live viewing on the City of Campbell River website in 2012.

During Council’s first meeting of the year, Jan. 10, city staff tested new equipment that broadcasts council meetings live over the Internet.

Future council meetings will be available live and will be archived for on-demand viewing.

To see meeting webcasts as of Jan. 24, go to the city’s website www.campbellriver.ca and click on the link from the homepage. A link will also be available from the Council Meetings page.

“Webcasting of council meetings offers an inexpensive, easy-to-implement way for the city to share information, potentially around the globe,” says Mayor Walter Jakeway.

The archived video and audio recordings of meetings will be indexed (and searchable) by agenda item so people can view the entire meeting or meeting segments by clicking on agenda items.
