Council on demand

The city has long provided the option of listening to city council and committee meetings over the phone or watching on Channel 35. Now, you can stream the council meetings on-line live or archived within the last 24 hours. Our new technology employs a number of features including publishing, indexing, search, and closed captioning.

Keeping government open, accessible, and accountable is a vital part of our democracy. This access will give Angelenos an even greater chance to observe and particiapte in issues that affect their lives. Here's a sample, from last month's Pioneer Women awards -- look for Jenny Lewis at the 1:04 mark. Or start using the service on your own.
