The City of Fayetteville has lots of ways for residents to keep up with what’s going on inside the walls of City Hall on Mountain Street.
The Fayetteville Government Channel features live programming of all city council meetings and other live and pre-recorded government meetings as well as informational programs to inform citizens about city services and events.
The city’s website, accessfayetteville.org also features live and archived video of city meetings.
Now streaming live online
As long as your computer’s web browser has some common plugins installed, you can stream the city’s government channel live online beginning today, June 10.
“Now you can watch the great programming of the Fayetteville Government Channel from anywhere in the world,” said Lindsley Smith, the city’s communication director. “Mark us as one of your website favorites.”
To view the streaming video you must have either Windows Media Player (version 9 or higher) or the Silverlight plugin installed in your web browser. Of course, a sound card and a decent internet connection are also necessary.
The Fayetteville Government Channel also appears on Cox Cable channel 16.
Live from Room 326
Live broadcasts from room 219, where city council meetings are held, are currently available for people who can’t make it out in person on Tuesday nights. Another meeting room is about to have the same capability.
City Hall room 326, where the city council agenda sessions and other city meetings are normally held, is almost ready for live broadcasting.
“Unless something unforeseeable occurs, we are still on target to get that room live capable by the next agenda session in two weeks,” said Smith.
