“This is the first time in history that a West Bend Common Council meeting will be conducted virtually,” said City Administrator Jay Shambeau. “We’ve explored several options to ensure each meeting is compliant with the Wisconsin Department of Justice’s (DOJ) Office of Open Government guidance on the Open Meetings Law.”
In lieu of attending the meetings in person at City Hall, the public will be able to watch and monitor from the safety of their own homes. Community Television will broadcast each meeting live online at http://westbend.viebit.com and on cable channel #987. On demand video recordings will also be uploaded the following day after each meeting.
Common Council and Plan Commission meetings will take place virtually until further notice.
