The City of Olathe is pleased to offer live and on-demand video streaming of City Council, Planning Commission and Specialty meetings thanks to a partnership with Swagit Productions, LLC.  

The streaming service engages residents by making it easy to view past and current meetings along with meeting agendas, reports, minutes and video all in one convenient location. Olathe’s meetings can be viewed on the City Council meetings page as they happen and on-demand via all platforms capable of video playback, including desktop computers, laptops, smart phones and tablets. An indexed agenda accompanies the videos, making it easy for viewers to jump to topics or agenda items that are most relevant to them.

 “The City of Olathe partnership with Swagit furthers our efforts to make local decision making more accessible to the public.” said Olathe Mayor, Michael Copeland. “Swagit’s instant archiving and agenda-indexing functionality is exactly what Olathe community members have requested for both City Council and Planning Commission meetings. Citizen engagement is very important to the City of Olathe and we are pleased to partner with Swagit to better reach our residents and the public.”

“Olathe had a need and our solutions were a perfect fit,” says Michael Osuna, Swagit’s North American Director of Sales. “We are honored to be the partner that elevates Olathe’s citizen engagement to the next level.”
