SOMERVILLE, NJ / June 6, 2019 – The Somerset County Board of Chosen Freeholders is now livestreaming its work sessions and regular meetings with Swagit.
“I have always been fully committed to open and accessible government. Livestreaming furthers that aim,” said Freeholder Director Brian D. Levine. “More and more residents of all ages are getting news and information online, which reinforces the need to livestream our meetings.”
The public can access the livestream from a link on the homepage, under “In the Spotlight,” or on the freeholders’ webpage. The direct link is: www.co.somerset.nj.us/livestream. An archive of livestreamed meetings can be found on the same webpage.
“Somerset County strives to make information available to the public so they can access it at a time, in a place and using a medium that suits them best,” said Freeholder Director Levine. “In addition to livestreaming meetings, we also post information on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and YouTube.”
The Freeholder Board meets twice a month, usually on the second and fourth Tuesday of the month. The schedule can be found on the county’s website. Work sessions, where items are discussed two weeks in advance of regular meetings, are held at 5 p.m. Regular meetings, where the board votes on resolutions, start at 6:30 p.m.
