Everyone in the community should have a seat at the table. Public meetings should be both welcoming and accessible - currently the County Board meetings are neither.
There are several unnecessary steps to even attend a meeting online including emailing asking for a link to attend the meeting and a 5 day notice for anyone wanting to address the Board.
Every County Board meeting should be broadcast live with an accessible easy-to-find link with good audio & video quality for online attendants.
Cataloguing the meetings on Youtube for later public review would be a great step similar to what the Springfield City Council already does.
If Springfield can do it, Sangamon County can too.
