County Board launches E-Notify and Live Audio Webcasting
On behalf of the Milwaukee County Board, I am pleased to announce the launch of two initiatives that enhance public accessibility to meetings of the County Board of Supervisors.
“E-Notify and live audio web casting are great tools that our residents can now use to keep up on the latest news from Milwaukee County. These products make it easier for residents to stay up-to-date on the actions of their County Supervisors. Many thanks to Milwaukee County’s Information Management Services Division and County Board staff for turning these ideas into a reality.”
E-Notify: Through a partnership with the City of Milwaukee, Milwaukee County resources are now available through E-Notify, a free subscription service. E-Notify lets the public subscribe to the categories of their choosing, including County Board news releases, meeting agendas and e-newsletters from County Supervisors. If you do not yet have an E-Notify account, click here to create an account and make your selections.
Live web casting: Audio from all County Board and Committee meetings are now available through links on the County Board webpage. The live audio is currently available any time a meeting is in progress.
