The Commissioners’ Office has launched a new automated online meeting agenda and video streaming system for public meetings and hearings.

The new system, called MinuteTraq, is a cloud-hosted software solution designed specifically for governments to spend less time managing the manual artifacts of the public meeting process by streamlining and automating the agenda creation workflow and updating web streaming capabilities.

In the past, Boulder County created its agenda through a manual process and delivered a printed meeting packet to each commissioner for every meeting. Now, the agenda process is paperless, meets best practices, and increases transparency for Boulder County residents. Also, members of the public are able to view all supporting documentation for agenda items.

Other advantages of the new system include improved video quality from our new web streaming capabilities and the ability to web stream utilizing multiple browsers such as Chrome, Firefox, Internet Explorer, and others. To keep up with handheld technology, the public now has the ability to stream through portable devices such as smartphones and tablets.

The Commissioners’ Office is excited to be able to provide a new electronic process and improve our capabilities for the benefit of the public and staff. The new meetings and video archive portal can be accessed at http://bouldercountyco.iqm2.com/Citizens/default.aspx.
