​Board’s Work Sessions Now Available via Livestream

To increase transparency and enhance accessibility, the Wake County Board of Commissioners is now streaming its work sessions live on the county’s website and local cable access stations.

“By broadcasting our work sessions live, we give residents who can’t attend these meetings in person another way to follow the policy-making process,” said Board Chair Jessica Holmes. “Open government is important, and taking this new step enables us to achieve a goal we set in January to expand our livestreaming capabilities.”

The county has livestreamed its twice-a-month regular board meetings for years. Adding the once-a-month work sessions will make it even easier for the public to listen to the conversations commissioners have as they receive information on pertinent topics and ask questions to gain understanding before making important decisions.

Work sessions are held on the second Monday of every month at 2 p.m. at the Wake County Justice Center. The next one is scheduled for Oct. 14 in Room 2800. The board will discuss several issues, including the Fuquay-Varina extraterritorial jurisdiction and the feasibility study on the proposed Downtown South entertainment complex.

Livestreaming the work sessions meets a key objective under the board’s Great Government goal, which aims to empower, protect and serve citizens through a culture of respect, collaboration and innovation.

A full calendar of board work sessions and regular meetings, all of which are open to the public, is available here.

You can access the livestream, activated when a meeting is in progress, here, or tune in to channel 18 on local cable. Recordings of past meetings are available online and on local cable channel 11.
