The City of Côte Saint-Luc is updating the way the public will view livestreams of City Council meetings, as well as how we accept questions for Question Period, and Second Question Period. Here is a summary of the changes.
The livestream will be moving from YouTube to Zoom. The reason for the change is to make it easier for those watching the meeting to ask questions during Question Period and Second Question Period. The livestream for each meeting is at www.CoteSaintLuc.org/council.
We are simplifying how the public can ask questions. In addition asking a question in advance via a webform, or asking a question in person at the Council Chamber, the public can now click the Raise Hand button in the Zoom app and ask a question live using their voice. We simply ask the person state their name and address in order to ask their question.
By improving the ease of asking a question from home, the City wishes to improve accessibility to meetings for those who are not comfortable attending in person because of health concerns, or for those who would find it difficult to attend in person for any other reason.
