The Town has improved the availability of meeting video and audio files by utilizing YouTube and SoundCloud social sharing networks. All 2015 Town Council meeting videos have been uploaded to YouTube, and all 2015 Town Council, Board & Commission meeting audio files have been uploaded to SoundCloud. Users now have the opportunity to view a catalogue of Town Council meeting replays, and the flexibility to listen to Town Council & Appointed Board/Commission meeting audio files at leisure.

Benefits include:

  • Reduced cost
  • Easy accessibility
  • Furthers transparency measures
  • Increases online video/audio availability
  • Promotes social sharing and engagement

Check out the Town’s YouTube channel: www.youtube.com/TrophyClubGov and SoundCloud Profile:  www.soundcloud.com/TrophyClubGov

Moving forward, all meetings will be available permanently on the online video and audio sharing sites. Videos and audio files will be uploaded within three days after a meeting.

YouTube
YouTube is a video-sharing website that allows users to upload, view and share videos. Primarily Town Council meeting videos will be shared on YouTube; other Board & Commission meetings are recorded using audio only.

SoundCloud
SoundCloud is an online audio distribution website that allows users to upload, organize, record, share and promote audio files. “Playlists” are located on the right-hand side of the screen and act as folders to organize audio files. For example, Town Council meeting audio files are uploaded to SoundCloud and added to the ‘Town Council Playlist’ to organize audio files by group.

SoundCloud Playlists include:

  • Public Service Announcements (PSA)
  • Joint Meetings
  • Town Council
  • Planning & Zoning Commission (P&Z)
  • Economic Development Corporation 4B Board (EDC 4B)
  • Crime Control & Prevention District (CCPD)
  • Citizens Financial Advisory Board (CFAB)
  • Parks & Recreation Board (P&R)
  • Animal Shelter Advisory Board (ASAB)
  • Tax Increment Reinvestment Zone No. 1 Board (TIRZ)
  • Zoning Board of Adjustment (ZBA)
