The City of Forney is now expanding the level of transparency and accessibility to all of its residents, through a new streaming service for it’s City Council meetings. The City has contracted through Dallas-based Swagit Productions to provide hands-free video streaming of all City Council meetings through the City’s website. As of now, only City Council meetings will be available for streaming, but the City is already looking at the possibility of adding more boards and meetings in the future.
“I think this is a great opportunity that will allow all residents to see how local government operates,” said Interim-City Manager Paul Stevens. “Our meetings begin at 6:30 p.m. on the first and third Tuesday of each month, and for a number of residents it may be hard for them to routinely attend meetings. This service will provide the ability to watch past meetings and help those with busy lifestyles.”
Residents will be able to view indexed and archived meeting from the City of Forney’s website under the “Watch Meetings” tab. The first meeting to be live streamed will be the March 6th City Council Meeting to begin at 6:30 p.m.
