Gigi Dietrich started this petition to Residents of Bay Point

The Ambrose Recreation and Park District in Bay Point has been hosting board of director meetings on an antiquated telephone conference line since the pandemic began last year. Besides ongoing technical issues (hard to hear speakers and drop calls 2 or 3 times per meeting), the telephone conference line lacks modern and efficient tools that would make the board of director meetings more inclusive to the public. 

Many residents have called on the board to make the change to Zoom. They won’t even consider doing it without a vote.  Public access to public meetings should not be an agenda item!

We are asking the Ambrose Recreation and Park District to switch their meeting platform from the old ineffective telephone conference line to the virtual platform Zoom. Anyone who wants to call in can still do so. We believe that switching to Zoom during this pandemic will give our community the chance to be more engaged at board of director meetings. Zoom meetings lets participants share visual information during presentations. It also allows participants to chat and ask questions without interrupting a speaker. 90% of us in this community already use Zoom for work, school, family chats, and friend groups who can no longer meet in person.  We understand how much value the virtual service would bring to board of director meetings.  

In addition, MANY other local government bodies have adopted Zoom as their main platform of community meetings.  Why should we get left behind??

In the last couple of months, Bay Point residents have asked the Ambrose board of directors to consider switching their meetings to Zoom. However, so far they have largely ignored our requests. This is why we are urging you to sign this petition to demand the switch to Zoom. Make your voice be heard!!
