Members of the public and media who watch Vernon City Council meetings online will notice a small change to the City’s website next week, which will make it easier to access the video feed. The change is part of the City’s ongoing shift to a new digital meeting management system.
As of Monday, July 18, access to livestream and recorded videos for Committee of the Whole, Regular Council Meetings, and Public Hearings, will be available within the Council meeting calendar. The calendar includes upcoming and past meetings, and lists each meeting’s date and time, agenda, and access to the video feed.
Previously, visitors to the City’s website clicked a button on the Council meeting agenda page, which took them to a different area of the City’s website.
How to watch a Vernon City Council meeting online:
- Go to www.vernon.ca/councilmeetings
- Click on the List view button (located beside the Upcoming Meetings heading)
- Select the meeting of your choice
- If the meeting is in progress: click on Agenda HTML. The livestream video will appear automatically in the agenda view.
- If the meeting has already concluded: click on the Video button to watch the recorded session.
The above selections can also be made in the Calendar view of the Council meeting calendar.
- For Upcoming Meetings, the video feed option will not appear until the meeting is in progress.
- Meetings recorded prior to July 18, 2022, will not be available within the newly established meeting calendar.
- The agenda and video feed are both available on a variety of digital devices, including desktop computers, laptops, tablets, and smartphones.
