Highlands Ranch Herald: Douglas County and Lone Tree residents who can’t attend certain public meetings in person will now be able to listen anytime after both entities expanded their public access following questions from Colorado Community Media on their practices.
Douglas County commissioners began recording work sessions, and the City of Lone Tree now records its regular meetings. In these meetings, city councils and county commissioners often make decisions about the use of tax dollars, policies and resolutions.
During pandemic shutdowns, several government entities in the county expanded access to their public meetings, making them available to join and comment virtually. Most continued doing so even after restrictions were lifted, and some said the changes resulted in more engagement from the public.
