Governing Board meetings to be broadcast live over the Internet

The St. Johns River Water Management District will begin live streaming its Governing Board meetings effective with the Sept. 8, 2015, Board meeting.

Following a successful trial run in August, the streaming — broadcasting over the Internet — will be available for Governing Board meetings and committee meetings, as well as Board workshops.

“Streaming our meetings will allow the public greater access to the District and insight into the discussions among our Board members as they deliberate on District business,” said District Executive Director Ann Shortelle.

“The streaming will be available through a third-party Internet service and broadcast live when a Governing Board meeting is in session,” said Kevin Brown, director of the District’s Office of Information Technology.

Those interested in watching the broadcast will need to use Internet Explorer 11, Chrome or Safari web browsers, which are compatible with the third-party Internet service. The broadcast can be accessed from the home page of this website.

Though broadcast live, the video will not be recorded. The audio recording of the meeting is the official record of the Governing Board’s meetings. Meeting minutes are posted, along with agendas from current and past meetings, on the District’s website.

Permitting tip

Legal authorizations for off-site systems

Applicants who propose to utilize off-site areas not under their control to meet the criteria outlined in Section 2.0 of the Applicant’s Handbook Volume II must obtain sufficient legal authorization prior to permit issuance. For example, an applicant who proposes to locate an outfall pipe from the stormwater basin to the receiving water on an adjacent property owner’s land must obtain a drainage easement or other appropriate legal authorization from the adjacent owner. A copy of the legal authorization must be submitted with the permit application.
