Get Con­nected: Charles County Gov­ern­ment Tele­vi­sion

Maryland Independent - - Community Forum -

Video and pho­tog­ra­phy bring a unique vis­ual ap­peal to com­mu­nity outreach. Us­ing mod­ern tech­nol­ogy, Charles County Gov­ern­ment Tele­vi­sion (CCGTV), your lo­cal gov­ern­ment ca­ble source, gives snap­shots of how your county gov­ern­ment is work­ing for you. The in­for­ma­tion CCGTV pro­vides daily is an­other way we are work­ing to make gov­ern­ment more open and ac­ces­si­ble.

County com­mis­sioner meet­ings, and meet­ings of com­mis­sioner-ap­pointed boards, com­mit­tees and com­mis­sions, are broad­cast on CCGTV, which airs on Ver­i­zon chan­nel 10 and Com­cast chan­nel 95. You can view live CCGTV broad­casts on your tele­vi­sion or via live stream on any com­puter or mo­bile de­vice. Past meet­ings are also re­broad­cast on the sta­tion.

If you are on-the-go or at work and miss a meet­ing when it airs, CCGTV main­tains an on­line dig­i­tal li­brary so you can watch at your con­ve­nience. Meet­ings and orig­i­nal pro­gram­ming are archived in the dig­i­tal li­brary. There are op­tions to watch video, lis­ten to au­dio only and view com­mis­sioner meet­ing agen­das. Whether you are in­ter­ested in the county com­mis­sion­ers, Board of Ap­peals, an­i­mal con­trol or the liquor board, your CCGTV sta­tion will keep you up to date.

Video KWIQ is an­other handy tool CCGTV of­fers. If you for­get the date of a spe­cific com­mis­sioner meet­ing or need to search for a par­tic­u­lar topic, the Video KWIQ tool can help. This tool al­lows you to search for any word spo­ken in a cap­tioned com­mis­sioner meet­ing. Video KWIQ al­lows you to search sev­eral prior years of archived meet­ings, which is help­ful for re­search or back­ground in­for­ma­tion.

With eight de­part­ments and an ac­tive Board of County Com­mis­sion­ers, your county gov­ern­ment is con­stantly buzzing with new events, pro­grams and ini­tia­tives. CCGTV plays an im­por­tant role in bring­ing Charles County Gov­ern­ment events, ser­vices and pro­grams to res­i­dents. CCGTV bul­letin board ads, videos, orig­i­nal pro­gram­ming and com­mer­cials are avail­able on the county’s YouTube chan­nel, Face­book and on Twit­ter. You can visit any of these so­cial me­dia sites for more ways to learn about county news and events.
