One thing we’ve heard from members of the Bloomfield community is that it’s hard to catch up on what’s happening at public meetings in town.

They’re hours-long at inconvenient times. The agendas aren’t clear. And clicking through recorded livestreams to catch the information you need just isn’t convenient. So we’ve launched Public Meeting Notes as part of our ongoing effort to make civic news and information more accessible in Bloomfield.

This service transcribes public meetings and presents the text alongside audio from the meeting. That means you can search keywords and more easily find and listen to statements by public officials on topics that matter to you.

Check out the example below from a recent town council meeting. And if you have any questions or suggestions, get in touch with us here.
