Charlotte County Meetings Streaming on Facebook Live


CHARLOTTE COUNTY, Fla. (April 24, 2017) – Charlotte County is now streaming County Commission meetings on Facebook Live. In addition, meetings of the Planning and Zoning Board, Board of Zoning Appeals and Code Enforcement Special Magistrate are now available to watch live or later on the county’s Facebook page, www.facebook.com/CharlotteCountyFlorida.

Facebook Live is part of Charlotte County’s citizen engagement strategy, allowing the county to connect directly with people via live comments.

“Increasingly our residents get their information, entertainment and social interactions through online portals like Facebook, Twitter, YouTube and other social media platforms,” Communications Manager Brian Gleason said. “We still depend on newspapers and television to reach people, but the immediacy and interactivity offered through social media adds another dimension to our outreach efforts.”

The next County Commission meeting is 9 a.m., Tuesday, April 25. To watch on Facebook Live, search for Charlotte County on Facebook. To receive notifications about live streams of meetings, like the Charlotte County Facebook page.

More than 600 people viewed parts of the board’s April 11 meeting on Facebook Live, either during the meeting or after it was saved to the county’s Facebook page.

Meetings of the commission and other boards also are available live on CC-TV (Comcast channel 20 or 97, CenturyLink Prism channel 96) and via CC-TV’s website, www.CharlotteCountyFL.gov/cctv. CC-TV programming also is available via the Charlotte County FL app on smart phones and Internet-connected devices.
