Council Conducts Meetings Via Technology

Posted on 04/08/2020

Casper City Council will conduct their all their meetings via Go To Meeting until it is declared safe to return to in-person meetings.  The meetings will continue to be streamed on YouTube live as well as cable channel 192.  “This means not every Council member will attend Council meetings in person,” explained Mayor Freel.  Council members have been supplied with the technology to hear the information being presented, see the presentations, and ask questions and participate in the discussion.  Mayor Freel will conduct the meetings from City Hall with Vice Mayor Khrystyn Lutz, or one other Council member, and key staff.

“We intend to conduct the business of the public as best we can, and we will take public input via phone,” said Freel. 
Citizens may call in from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. the first and third Mondays and Tuesdays to schedule a call for the regular Council meetings.  Staff will take citizens’ information and then arrange for Council to call individuals back during the meeting.  If a citizen does not schedule a call back in advance, calls will also be taken beginning at 6 p.m. by staff and transferred to Council during the public comment or public hearing.  The phone number for public comment is 307-235-8215.  Citizens can also make comments to Council ahead of time via email at councilcomments@casperwy.gov.

 “I am kindly requesting that those who plan to speak, call in ahead of the meeting, in order to help maintain efficiency and flow during the meeting,” stated Freel.  “Those who are not able to schedule a call prior to the meeting will still be accommodated, although they may have to hold in order to sequence the calls.”

 Additional information will be released as it is made available.
