Remote General Citizen Communication
Austinites have asked that the City make it easier for individuals to participate in council meetings. Time is set aside at 12 noon at each council meeting for a maximum of 10 individuals to address the council on topics of their choice. For those unable to travel to City Hall, videoconferencing for Remote Citizen Communication is available at one Library in each of the City Council districts, except in the district where City Hall is located. City Hall will remain the District 9 Citizen Communications venue.
For more information about General Citizen Communication visit austintexas.gov/department/citizen-participation-council-meetings.
Library staff will assist customers with starting a videoconferencing meeting using the Chromebox for Meetings videoconferencing cart, but will not provide technical assistance or troubleshooting for devices outside the Library.
Customers who wish to utilize the videoconferencing tools should be familiar with using the internet, email, Google Hangouts and audio/visual tools such as web cams, microphones and speakers.
