Jacksonville City Council to Broadcast Council Meeting Live on Internet

March 09, 2006  

As part of its on-going effort to provide greater public access to its meetings, the Jacksonville City Council will make its March 14, 2006 meeting available via live streaming video on the Internet as a test of the technology. The Fastvide Corporation of Toronto, ON., will temporarily install software in the City Council Chamber as part of an initial test to demonstrate the capabilities of a streaming webcast of the Council meeting and to gauge public interest in accessing the meeting via computer.

The video feed of the meeting, which begins at 6:00 p.m. on March 14, 2006, may be accessed via http://events.onlinebroadcasting.com/coj/031406/index.php?test=true
