Cecil Council Going Digital, Will Live-Stream Meetings

Cecil County Council meetings will be live-streamed on the Council’s webpage starting Tuesday, October 16, 2018.

According to a press release:

“By clicking on the link, you will be redirected to our provider, Zoom Video Communications. On your first visit, you will be prompted to ‘download & run Zoom.’ After the brief download, you will then be instructed to provide your email address and name, and that’s it. The livestream will start as soon as the meeting begins.”

Tome added that a separate download will be required for each electronic device.

“It is exciting to offer innovative technologies within the county that will not only benefit government efficiencies but will also help citizens stay engaged and have more awareness,” said Brian Miller, Director of Information Technology.

“The application also enables county employees to meet virtually with other counties, state agencies and businesses via audio and video teleconferences which will helps reduce travel costs.”

The live internet streaming source is included in the audio-video (AV) system upgrades recently completed in the Elk Room at the Cecil County Administration Building. The AV upgrades were part of the approved FY18 budget.
