It's finally here. You can see the Spokane Valley City Council meetings live without leaving your living room. The City has a new link on it's web site labeled "SVTV." Click on that and you can watch live web streaming of the city council meeting every Tuesday at 6 p.m. But even better is the archive. Each meeting (going back to April 5) is archived. You can either watch the video or listen to an MP3 audio version. The documents for each council meeting are also there. When you pull up video of a meeting, an agenda will pop up. You can either watch the whole thing beginning to end or click on the agenda item you want to listen to and it will go right to that spot. For those of you not on a first name basis with the council members or city staff members, a nice label pops up with each person's name and title as they talk.
Tonight is the first night of the live web streaming. So if you really want to hear the discussion on economic development or the discussion on sign codes and landscaping regulations, settle down in front of your computer and listen in. I'll be the one sitting in in the front row.
