A first occurred Tuesday evening when Place 4 Councilperson, Holly Gotcher, attended the meeting via remote webcast. The city “IT Guy” set Gotcher up so that she could go “live” while traveling to an out of town conference and meeting. Councilperson Gotcher set the phone on the passenger console and directed her co-driver to continue “on down the road”. She was able to ask questions before a vote as well as make the traditional “thumbs up or down” sign for a visual vote.
Today one of our elected representatives can attend city hall meetings from anywhere in the world that WIFI is available.
