Sarasota News Leader January 24, 2014 Page 67 CITY COMMISSION SCHEDULES UPGRADES TO ITS CHAMBERS The City of Sarasota has scheduled muchneeded upgrades for the City Commission Chambers beginning Feb. 24, the city has announced. The upgrades will require approximately two weeks to complete, a news release says. During that period, the Sarasota City Commission will be hosted by the Sarasota Board of County Commissioners for the March 3 regular Sarasota City Commission meeting in the County Commission Chambers on the first floor of the Sarasota County Administration Building. That facility is located at 1660 Ringling Blvd. in downtown Sarasota. Meeting locations for city advisory boards will be determined and noticed in advance, the release adds. "The audio-visual equipment upgrades are necessary to replace outdated and failing technology" so the City of Sarasota can continue to broadcast live City Commission and advisory board meetings "without the service interruptions currently experienced on a routine basis," the release notes. The upgrades are part of the city's "continuing effort to assure the public of transparency and openness" in city government, the release continues. Meeting locations for the City Commission and advisory boards will be announced on the meeting notices regularly sent out in advance of those sessions, the release says. Anyone who has not already done so may sign up for City of Sarasota eSubscriptions by visiting In the lower left corner under "News and Events," select "eSubscriptions," and then select the meetings for which you would like to receive notices, the release points out. % The March 3 City Commission meeting will be held in the County Commission Chambers in the Administration Building on Ringling Boulevard in Sarasota.
