With growing public interest in the proceedings taking place at City Hall, Milwaukee City Clerk Jim Owczarski announced this week the addition of a second internet stream to the City Channel’s public affairs offerings.

Live Stream 2 came online this week with real-time coverage of the Anti-Graffiti Policy Committee and the Historic Preservation Commission. City Channel Manager Dennis Geraghty said the new stream will be used primarily to provide live coverage of boards and commissions that schedule meetings concurrent with other committee business that is carried on the City Channel’s primary stream.

“In the interest of providing as much transparency as possible, we’re very pleased to be able to offer this service to the public,” Owczarski said. “The City Channel already offers gavel-to-gavel coverage of all Common Council business, and with the addition of Live Stream 2, we can now offer anyone with an internet connection even more access to the live proceedings of other city boards and commissions as well.”

Geraghty said the City Channel brought Live Stream 2 online without the use of any additional city resources. “We’re simply taking advantage of new features offered to us by our vendor to provide this additional service to the public,” he said. Live Stream 2, as well as the primary City Channel live stream and a programming schedule, can be found at milwaukee.gov/citychannel.
