Utah County Com­mis­sion meet­ings stream­ing live


Utah County Com­mis­sion weekly meet­ings are now avail­able to view live on­line on the county YouTube chan­nel. While it’s not as dra­matic as film­ing a movie, it is a step for­ward in the com­mis­sion’s com­mit­ment to open gov­ern­ment and to pro­vid­ing ac­cess to com­mis­sion meet­ings. Utah County Com­mis­sion meet­ings are usu­ally held each week on Tues­day at 9 a.m.

To ac­cess past meet­ings or to view a live meet­ing, visit the Utah County web­site at www.co.utah.ut.us. Un­der Agen­das and Meet­ings, go to Com­mis­sion Meet­ings. Click on the YouTube logo and you’ll be di­rected to past meet­ings or live stream­ing.

The county has been work­ing on re­search­ing, pur­chas­ing and in­stalling the sys­tem for stream­ing the meet­ings dur­ing the past year. Com­mis­sion Chair Bill Lee has been a strong ad­vo­cate for more trans­parency in gov­ern­ment and led the move to get the new sys­tem in­stalled. His ef­forts, along with strong sup­port from Com­mis­sion­ers Graves and Ivie, have re­sulted in the new sys­tem. The sys­tem has been in use since the Feb. 21 meet­ing and most of the bugs in the sys­tem have been worked out, ac­cord­ing to Lee. Com­ment­ing on the new sys­tem and the op­por­tu­nity of cit­i­zens to be­come more in­volved in county gov­ern­ment, the com­mis­sion­ers ex­pressed their hope that Utah County cit­i­zens would take ad­van­tage of the op­por­tu­nity to learn more about the de­ci­sion-mak­ing process in the county and the vi­tal role county gov­ern­ment plays in ev­ery cit­i­zen’s life.
