Esquimalt launches webcasting for council meetings

Residents interested in civic matters will now be able to view live and archived videos of council meetings

  • Oct. 21, 2014 8:00 a.m.

The Township of Esquimalt began webcasting its council meetings Monday.

Residents interested in civic matters will now be able to view live and archived videos of council meetings from the comfort of their own homes using their home computer, or on the road with their mobile device.

A link will be available on the Township home page which will redirect web visitors to a centralized portal. As content is added to the portal, users will be able to access not only videos, but supporting documents such as agendas, minutes, staff reports and presentations.

Archived videos will be indexed, allowing viewers to jump to subjects of interest quickly, rather than watching the entire meeting. Users can also subscribe to an RSS feed and share content through social media.

To learn more, please go online to esquimalt.ca.
