Greenport Village meetings to be streamed live

Lights! Camera! Greenport!

…oh, and computer.

Thursday night’s Greenport Village Board of Trustees meeting will be the first Greenport Trustee meeting to be streamed live over the internet on the village’s web site, according to Village Clerk Sylvia Perrilo.

The meeting starts at 7 p.m. and the web address is www.villageofgreenport.org

Once you’re on the village web site, find the IQM2 portal on the left side of the home page and click it, Ms. Perrilo said.

A banner will then appear at the top of the page reading, “Live,” with the meeting date and time.

From there, click on the banner to get the video and the agenda for the meeting, which will feature public hearings on making Wiggins Street a two-way street, putting a new stop sign at the intersection of Wiggins Street and Third Street, and a wetlands permit for property on 49 Stirling Cove.

The board will also continue the public hearing on its proposed budget for 2016-17.

The village board is trying out the IQM2 system on a trial basis, and has been given a one-month free trial by the company, Ms. Perrilo said.

It would normally cost $357 per month, officials said. The village can discontinue the service after the trial period ends if officials are not satisfied.

Ms. Perrilo said IQM2 can also be used for webcasts of other village boards, such as the planning board or zoning board of appeals.

Village officials have been discussing a number of options for broadcasting and keeping minutes of meetings in recent months.

The towns of Southold, Southampton and Brookhaven use the IQM2 system.
