Due to COVID-19 guidelines, the April 7 Raleigh City Council afternoon and evening meetings will be held virtually. IT and Communications are partnering to host the meetings via Webex Events. The general public and employees who wish to view the meetings can watch via the regular channels – the City's website, YouTube, or RTN 11 – but the meeting will look a bit different than usual.
Instead of the Council Chamber, viewers will see speakers on their webcams and any PowerPoint presentations will be shared via the Webex platform. The meetings will take a little longer to allow for speakers to transition and other logistical aspects.
We will evaluate these meetings and may explore applying similar tools to future meetings as needed. We are excited to test this process and we appreciate your patience as we navigate this new way of meeting!
