Beginning Sept. 11, City Council subcommittee meetings will be added to the lineup of city meetings that can be viewed live on the city’s website and television station.
Live coverage of subcommittee meetings on phoenix.gov and PHX 11 is part of the city’s ongoing transparency efforts.
“The live televising of public meetings is essential for transparency so Phoenix residents can see what decisions are being made at the city and how they are being made,” Mayor Greg Stanton said. “Subcommittees are on the front lines of policy making, and I want to make sure our residents can see it and get involved.”
The Transportation and Infrastructure Subcommittee meeting at 10 a.m. Tuesday, Sept. 11, will be the first to go live.
PHX11 and phoenix.gov will continue live coverage of City Council formal and policy meetings at City Council Chambers, 200 W. Jefferson St. The meetings also can be viewed on demand on phoenix.gov and youtube.com/cityofphoenixaz.
The week’s City Council meetings also can be viewed in one time block at 11 a.m. Saturdays on “City Block,” a new PHX 11 program.
PHX 11, the city’s award-winning news and information station, broadcasts on Cox Cable Channel 11; phoenix.gov has won three consecutive Sunny Awards for exceeding transparency standards for the content it provides. The Sunshine Review, a nonprofit organization dedicated to state and local government transparency, sponsors the awards.
