starting January 8
City of Bristol, Tennessee officials plan to ring in the New Year with an addition to its coverage. The City plans to live stream each City Council meeting starting in January. Residents who want to see the meeting can view the live stream by visiting the City’s website www.bristoltn.org and clicking on the card entitled “City of Bristol, TN City Council Meeting Live” or by visiting the City’s official YouTube channel WatchBTNTV.
The first live stream planned for the City of Bristol, Tennessee is set to take place on Tuesday, January 8, at 7 p.m. Residents who are unable to make the meeting are encouraged to watch on their smartphones, tablets, and other internet-enabled devices.
For citizens who are not able to attend the City Council meeting or to view the stream live, an on-demand version of the meeting will be posted on WatchBTNTV within 24 hours.
The stream will be managed by BTN-TV, the City’s government channel operated by the City of Bristol’s Department of Community Relations. The setup for the live stream will include multiple camera angles and audio from each member of City Council and the public podium.
“We are super excited to bring live streaming to Bristol, Tennessee,” said Terrie Talbert, Director of Community Relations for the City of Bristol. “Almost everyone has a smartphone or some other way to access the internet; it makes sense to bring live streaming as an option for residents to view our City Council meetings. We want to ensure that the public has as much access as possible, and can be as involved with their local government as they want to be.”
