katharine hawkes started this petition to Farmington City Council
Problem
As citizens of Farmington, we are requesting that city meetings be live-streamed for the benefit of the community. Many of the citizens have responsibilities, disablities and other conflicts that prevent attendance to city planning, council and work session meetings. It would be to the benefit of the city to allow citizens to view meetings at their own availability. This would help keep the community informed as to what is going on in the city, encourage a more diverse group to attend meetings, and have transparency in our governing body.

Solution
Live stream city council, planning, and work sessions. Allow public access through a designated YouTube channel

Personal story
I am a mother of 3 under the age of 4 and have tried to stay up on the minutes of council meetings. It is very difficult to know everything that is stated from the minutes because of its brief nature. I also would like to know more of what the council members say and how they say it because they are representing ME and my beliefs. My husband would also like to attend meetings, but he is a school coach with games on Tuesday and Thursday nights. With 3 small children it is hard to find a babysitter to put the kids to bed so I could attend meetings. Please help me and YOU be able to watch the meetings that you arent able to attend. This petition is not to replace in-person attendance, but instead to help increase involvement and encourage more people to attend.
