Residents can now watch Medicine Hat City Council meetings online.

Starting September 9th, the City is adding the option of downloading or viewing a video broadcast of City Council meetings from its website. To date, residents have had the choices of attending City Council meetings or viewing them live via Shaw TV.

“This is a new value-added service to our residents that allows people to view the entire City Council meeting when they want in the comfort of their own home or any where there is an Internet connection, including from a smart phone,” says Mayor Norm Boucher. “This option gives residents 24-hour, seven days a week access to Council meetings.”

The first available online video broadcasts are the Tuesday, September 8th City Council meeting, followed by the Wednesday, September 9th Special City Council Meeting on the Strategic Review of the Natural Gas and Oil Production business. All videos will be available the following day as a video broadcast and / or download on the City’s website, located here.

If you are free Wednesday night and are concerned about how Medicine Hat runs it’s natural gas and oil production (Prodco) you should check this out. I went to the last meeting and everybody from the public that spoke (about 15 people) were against the recommendations from E&Y. The main concern is that they recommended the City establish an independent board. The fear is that the city would eventually lose ownership of its resources. More information can be found here.
