On November 7, 2017, the first audio-visual recording of the Worcester County Commissioners’ open-session meeting became available for viewing on the County website.
To view the meeting video, visit www.co.worcester.md.us, click the Meeting Files icon, and then click Watch. The high-definition video is fully indexed, allowing viewers to scroll through to view discussions on specific agenda topics or to watch the meeting in its entirety.
Future Commissioners’ meetings will be videotaped as well and will be available for public viewing on the County website following each meeting.
“I’d like to welcome everybody out here in the audience today and everybody who may watch this at home on the computer later this afternoon to the new age of Worcester County Commissioners’ meetings,” Commissioner Joe Mitrecic said at the start of the November 7 meeting. “And I would like to thank all my fellow Commissioners for allowing this to happen.”
The Commissioners contracted with Swagit Productions, LLC of Dallas, Texas to record, catalogue, and broadcast the meetings. The inclusion of the new recording system reflects the Commissioners’ commitment to transparency and accessibility, assuring that those who are unable to attend the Commissioners’ bi-monthly meetings on the first and third Tuesdays may stay up-to-date on all Worcester County legislative and administrative issues.
