The Council Bluffs City Council meetings will no longer be recorded by Iowa Western Community College and broadcasted on CBTV17. Beginning in April, Council Bluffs City Council study sessions and meetings will be live-streamed to our website. The city has hired Swagit, a hands-free video streaming and broadcasting company specifically designed for government. New video equipment is necessary to transition to Swagit, and the installation of the new equipment is expected to be complete by April.
In addition to streaming the City Council study sessions and meetings, we are working with Cox Communications to secure air time on a local public television station. As details become finalized we will provide updates.
As a temporary solution, the February and March City Council study sessions and meetings will broadcast on Facebook Live. To see these videos, find us on Facebook @CityofCB or City of Council Bluffs – Municipal Government. We are working to improve the sound quality of Facebook Live for this temporary solution.
