Columbia County continues live webstreams of meetings
Natasha Vaughn-Holdridge reports for Columbia-Greene Media that the Columbia County Board of Supervisors will continue to livestream their meetings on YouTube. “We will still live-stream it on YouTube, so that the public can watch it,” Board of Supervisors Chair Matt Murell said. “But it the public wants to make comments they have to come to 401 (State St.)” in Hudson. The board also passed a local law allowing supervisors to participate remotely for full meetings or committees when necessary, beginning in June. “The way the law is set up is meetings will be in person and if there is extenuating circumstances, a supervisor can still join in virtually,” Murell said. “That can be because of illness or because of child care issues and so on.” Hudson, Philmont, Catskill, and many other local towns also provide live web streams of their meetings for constituents.
