In 2015, in the service of its core mission to increase government transparency and foster citizen participation, the Civic Association began videotaping important Borough Council meetings.
The effort was so successful that the Civic decided to live stream all Borough Council business and caucus meetings and, where possible, committee meetings as well. In addition, the Civic has captured forums, town halls, and other special events. The Civic uploads these video streams to its YouTube channel, which you can also access here.
The Civic’s live-stream program is very time-consuming, and the Board would welcome more volunteers to assist in its live-streaming efforts. All you need is a smart phone and the willingness to attend meetings. The process doesn’t use any data on your phone, as you can log in to the Borough’s WiFi. We will show you everything you need to know.
