Live Streaming for Council meetings

City Set to “Live Stream” Regular Council Meetings


The City of Williams Lake is excited to announce that residents will now be able to stream and playback Council meetings on their computers or mobile phones.

The City has been in the process of testing and implementing equipment and software to facilitate the live streaming and recording of Council meetings.  At its regular meeting held on Tuesday, October 8, 2019, City staff completed a final test recording, which is now available online by clicking the video button/icon at the top of the meeting agenda page via the following link:

This new service is intended to enhance the public’s access to and involvement in Council’s decision-making processes.  Both live streaming and recordings may be accessed from all mobile devices and computers.

“Live streaming is a great tool to increase public engagement and local government transparency,” said Mayor Walt Cobb. “We are looking forward to implementing this technology and hope that it encourages residents who may not be able to attend a Council meeting in person to be informed about what the City of Williams Lake is doing.”

The first official “live stream” is scheduled for Tuesday, October 22, 2019 at 6:00 pm.  A link to the stream will be available on the City’s new Council meetings portal page, set to be released the week of October 15th.

Stay tuned to the City’s website (www.williamslake.ca) and Facebook page (https://www.facebook.com/CityWL/) for additional information and updates.
