Charlottesville to make city meetings available on demand

This is really good news, and I'm pleased they will have this in place.

Here is the press release...

CHARLOTTESVILLE, VA — The Office of Communications with the City of Charlottesville today announced the launch of both live and on-demand access to City Council and other meetings via streaming Internet video beginning with the City Council meeting of January 2nd. The City recently implemented advanced web streaming solutions offered by Granicus Inc. to improve access to City government by offering video and audio of meetings broadcast in City Council Chambers to anyone with computer internet access.

“With our new streaming video system, citizens can now decide what they want to see and when they want to see it from any device with an Internet connection,” said Ric Barrick, Director of Communications for the City of Charlottesville. “This year has been an incredibly successful one for our website and we know this new feature will set the momentum for future enhancements in 2007.” The City of Charlottesville website, www.charlottesville.org, recently won two prominent national awards for “Best City Website in the Country.”
