Following city issues via Web video just got easier for Ann Arborites
Keeping informed about Ann Arbor City Council meeting actions just became easier, city officials announced today.
For years, city meetings have been telecast live on CTN Channel 16. More recently, City Council meetings as well as other public meetings and original Ann Arbor programming are accessible online via CTN’s Video on Demand.
To further enhance accessibility to meeting coverage and online viewing options, meeting coverage now is being indexed so viewers can skip directly to a particular agenda item’s meeting footage and watch what happened.
For instance, what was said about Argo Dam and the HRIMP report at Monday's meeting? What were the talks surrounding the council's decision to spend $895,000 to replace the city's financial system earlier this week?
Now you can find out for yourself.
To watch a specific agenda item, follow these step-by-step directions:
1. Visit the City Council Web page. 2. Click on Recent City Council Minutes on the left navigation menu. 3. From the list that appears, locate the City Council meeting of interest (video indexing is available for meetings Nov. 4 to recent). 4. Click on that meeting’s blue "Agenda" or "Minutes" link. 5. When the PDF document opens, locate the item of interest, and click on its corresponding blue link. 6. Click on the video link to watch the footage.
