(Franklin, GA) — The Heard County Board of Commissioners met in a mostly empty Commission Chamber of the Heard County Administration Building  last week for the first meeting to ever be broadcast live on the internet.

The entirety of the proceedings were broadcast live on YouTube and the video is still available on the Heard County Government YouTube channel.

The meeting has been viewed 200 times as of this morning and can be watched at the embedded link above.

Items addressed during the 30 minutes meeting included the Adoption of a contagious disease policy, the discussion of a firetruck purchase, and the approval of bids for road paving projects for 2020.

“On April 28, 2020 the Board of Commissioners held their regular monthly meeting meeting as required by law,” said Chairman Lee Boone after the meeting.

“The Board wants to express their appreciation to all citizens and employees for their understanding, cooperation and protective measures practiced to minimize the spread of the virus.”
