Call it a sign of the times. In this age of technology, it’s not a surprise that residents of Cottonwood Heights can now hear what’s going on in city meetings without leaving their couches.
Most official meetings, including those of the Cottonwood Heights City Council, Planning Commission, Board of Adjustments and Architectural Review Commission, are now available online for live streaming. To listen to the meetings, clink on the audio link logo in the upper left side of the city’s website homepage at cottonwoodheights.utah.gov.
“We’ve heard from some of our citizens that they’d like access to the discussions at our meetings when they can’t attend, so we’ve created this link,” said Kory Solorio, city recorder. “We also post updates on our Facebook and Twitter sites during the meetings, and anyone who can’t listen live can access our audio archives the morning after the meetings are held, again through the website.”
Solorio said the new program continues the city’s policy of total transparency in government meetings and decision making.
