Weld County could begin live streaming meetings

The Complete Colorado: After years of residents asking for more transparency from the Board of Weld County Commissioners, it appears the commissioners are prepared to take the giant leap into the 21st Century.

A work session is planned for Monday at the Weld County offices, 1150 O St. in Greeley, to discuss video live streaming of its meetings.

According to 2017 data from the Colorado demographer’s office, Weld is the ninth largest county in the state with nearly 305,000 residents. Of the top 10 counties, Weld is one of three that does not offer live or archived video streaming. Douglas County (seventh largest) offers live audio streaming. Pueblo County (10th largest) does not video or audio but has approved live video streaming and is in the process of implementing.

Weld currently offers audio transcripts for all its meetings — regular, work sessions and land use hearings.

Many other smaller counties also offer live video streaming, as do many boards of education and municipalities across the state.
