Residents can now watch Agoura Hills City Council and Planning Commission meetings at their convenience by visiting the City’s website at: http://www.ci.agoura-hills.ca.us. With today’s busy lifestyles, it is not always convenient to personally attend a City meeting or to watch a meeting at a specific time on television. Webstreaming provides an easy and convenient way for the public to gain access to City meetings at their leisure. The new system is powered by San Francisco-based Granicus, Inc., the premier provider of local government webcasting and public meeting management solutions to over 350 government agencies spanning 35 states across the nation. Streaming audio and video technology is one of the most reliable, convenient, and comprehensive communication platforms available to government today. Agoura Hills is one of the many California municipalities adopting this tool, which is critical for expanding public engagement and public access in the 21st century.
The City’s solution includes streaming software to capture, manage, store, and distribute online video recordings. This solution enables City staff to cross-link City Council and Planning Commission official agendas, minutes, documents, and any other critical public record content directly to the streaming video. With this document linking capability, and the “jump to” feature, the public can access the information they want, when they want it, and move to a specific point within the meeting, without having to fast-forward or rewind through the video. Additionally, the video page includes a keyword search so users can simply search an issue they are interested in watching the City Council or Planning Commission discuss. Users may choose to watch a meeting "live" during its normally scheduled date and time, or watch archived meetings at their leisure by clicking on the available meeting dates.
Having trouble viewing a meeting or need further assistance? Please contact Kimberly Rodrigues, City Clerk/Recording Secretary at (818) 597-7303 or email: firstname.lastname@example.org.
