Township Now Recording Regular Council Meetings
Published on 23 January 2020
The Township of South Stormont is pleased to announce that members of the public will now be able to playback Regular Meetings of Council from the Township website.
The Township has been in the process of testing and implementing equipment and software to facilitate the recording of Council meetings. At its regular meeting held Wednesday, January 22, 2020, Township staff completed a final test recording, which is now available online by clicking the meeting date on the agenda page, southstormont.ca/councilmeetings
When people view the video recording, they can expect an experience very similar to being at the meetings in person. Videos will allow residents to watch the entire Council meeting, or quickly jump to the topics that are of most interest to them, all from the comfort of their own home on any device. Later in the year, the Township of South Stormont expects to livestream each Council meeting as well, allowing residents to watch in real-time.
“This is a significant step in our goal to improve access to information about what the Township of South Stormont is doing,” said Mayor Bryan McGillis. “We are hopeful that the use of this enhanced technology and software will encourage more residents to become engaged with their local government.”
Moving forward, the recorded Regular Meetings of Council will be posted to the Township website on the day following the meeting.
