The City of Bristol has partnered with CivicPlus® to implement its Agenda & Meeting Management Select solution, also known as CivicClerk®. The City of Bristol will use the software to streamline the automation of its agenda and meeting minutes management processes and enable convenient access by residents to public content. The software also allows board members to participate in live meetings remotely anywhere from any Internet-enabled device.
“This upgrade to the City’s agenda and meeting management system will allow for a more streamlined and consistent process for City staff to better manage meeting agendas, meeting minutes, and agenda packets, which are posted to the meeting calendars on the City’s website. It will be more user-friendly for the community as well with the ability to watch meetings live on demand from any internet-enabled device,” stated Erica Cabiya, City of Bristol Town & City Clerk.
With City of Bristol’s use of Agenda & Meeting Management Select, residents can utilize an accessible, mobile-friendly public portal with email subscription capabilities, and benefit from such conveniences as the ability to view or download PDF files for agendas, meeting minutes, agenda packets, and other documents, access a meeting calendar, and watch live/on-demand meeting videos.
It is important to note that if you currently receive email meeting notifications through the City’s website you will have to re-sign up for these notifications through the new system by creating an account at https://notifications.civicplus.com/CT-Bristol/. Click on the “SIGN IN TO MANAGE SUBSCRIPTIONS” button at the top right.
Mayor Caggiano stated; “The implementation of CivicClerk will create uniformity for all agendas and meeting minutes. We hope this will foster better engagement with the public as the new format should make finding all documents for meetings more convenient and easier to follow. I encourage the public to sign up to receive email notifications for meetings as soon as agendas and other documents are posted to CivicClerk in order to stay engaged in City government.”
