Live stream addition to Wednesday BOCC schedule

As the COVID-19 pandemic continues, and lobby doors to county buildings remain closed (now through May 1), the Board of County Commissioners will start a live stream update for the public following their Wednesday board meeting. Starting Wednesday, April 8, from 9:30 – 10:00 a.m. (or right after the 9:00 a.m. meeting), the Board of Commissioners will provide updates on the work county government is doing through the pandemic. These updates will continue through April 29.

“The buildings may be closed to the public, but county government continues to work for our residents,” said Commissioner Chair Mike Freeman. “We feel it is important to share the results of that work, so we decided to utilize existing technology to live stream these updates for county residents.”

During the past few weeks, the Board has been involved in a variety of projects and updates including looking at ways to provide financial relief to county residents and businesses, continuing to explore options for gathering public input on the comprehensive plan, and supporting the team at the health department as they continue to investigate COVID-19 cases.

Each commissioner will update the public on various county government projects as well as answer some questions submitted by the public to a dedicated email address for this event: askthecommissioners@weldgov.com.

“We are all figuring out new ways to conduct business based on our current situation,” said Freeman. “We think this live stream update will help residents feel better connected with what county government continues to work on during this time.”
