SMITHFIELD — The livestream of the Johnston County Board of Commissioners meetings will have a new home and a new look starting Monday, Aug. 2.
The commissioners meetings, which are held three times a month, will be available to stream on your smart TV, tablet or phone through the county’s Youtube channel and free for anyone to watch live or on demand.
Johnston County officials report, the new livestream will utilize a multi-camera production providing a better viewing experience for the public, graphics showing speaker’s names and agenda items and a document camera for the public to follow along with presentations and powerpoints.
After a year and four months, the Board of Commissioners will return to their regular meeting room in the Johnston County Courthouse annex with limited seating available to the public due to the capacity of the meeting room and ongoing COVID-19 precautions. There will be additional seating available, just outside the meeting room, with a live video feed of the board meeting.
If you would like to be notified when each Johnston County Board of Commissioner meeting begins, be sure to subscribe to the Johnston County Government YouTube channel and turn on notifications after you’ve subscribed. Officials will also post links to the meetings on their Facebook page.
After meetings conclude, they will be chronologically archived on the county’s YouTube channel. This will allow the public to navigate and find specific meetings quicker and more efficiently.
The public can find the Board of Commissioners meetings on Johnston County’s YouTube Channel (www.youtube.com/watch?v=DQcm3IbPLdo).
