Work began this week on "some much-needed upgrades to the audio-visual equipment in the City Commission Chambers," the city has announced. It will take about two weeks to complete the project, a news release says. As a result, the March 3 City Commission meeting will be held in the Sarasota County Commission Chambers, located on the first floor of the County Administration Center at 1660 Ringling Blvd. in downtown Sarasota, the release points out. "The audio-visual equipment upgrades are necessary to replace outdated and fail- ing technology" so the city can continue to broadcast live meetings without the types of service interruptions that have become commonplace, the release explains. "The broadcasts of city meetings on television and the Internet are a valuable service to our citi- zens, residents and visitors," said City Auditor and Clerk Pamela Nadalini in the release. "Many people are unable to visit City Hall in person, and this service allows them to stay engaged with their local government." Meeting locations for the City Commission and its advisory boards will be announced on the notices sent out in advance of those sessions, the release notes. Those who have not signed up for City of Sarasota eSubscrip- tions may visit the website at sarasotagov. com and then, in the lower left corner under "News and Events," select eSubscriptions and the meetings for which they would like to receive notices. Upgrades of the audio-visual equipment in the City Commission Chambers are under way. Photo by Norman Schimmel MARCH 3 CITY COMMISSION MEETING TO BE AT DIFFERENT SITE NEWS BRIEFS
