Let’s Get Organized!

A new Pine Plains Town Board has its Reorganization Meeting; newly elected Town Supervisor reads of the membership of town officers, staff, board and committee apointments.  

I’m baaack!  Well, at least for a little while.  This is not official, just one citizen’s personal iniative to help out by on getting some video out to the community. It is authorized only by the New York State Open Meetings Law.

And to wish the new board welcome!

Community Meetings

A video archive of Pine Plains Town Board, Planning Board, and other public meetings since 2012, consisting of about 170 videos.

Unlike those of most other municipalities, these videos were neither authorized nor paid for by the Town of Pine Plains. They have been filmed and posted by Pine Plains Views as a service to the community. As of June, 2019, I am no longer filming meetings on a regular basis and will document only those that are of particular interest to me as I am permitted to do as a citizen under the NYS Open Meetings Law.

Town Board Meeting, June 20, 2019

To watch in full screen, click the arrow box at the lower right corner of the video. On a mobile device, rotate to landscape mode for full-screen playback.

This meeting went on for a very long time: 2 hours and 40 minutes! Even though I compress the video files, this one would have exceeded my weekly allocation of 5 gigabytes in Vimeo unless I compressed it more than usual. Which I did. But I uploaded a higher resolution file onto one of my YouTube channels and if you would like to see the meeting in higher resolution go here.

Be forewarned, though, that YouTube will try to hold you and suggest other videos at the end.

Community Meeting, Comprehensive Plan Discussion, June 17, 2019

And if you are curious about what Pine Plains is really like, there are over 70 video stories about life in our small town in rural America as well as an huge photo album and links to community resources here: Pine Plains Views

Enjoy! And feel free to leave comments, feedback, kudos… whatever. Just so I know that someone looks at this stuff.
