See What Topics the Wright County Board Will Discuss and Watch Meetings Live

Wright County residents may be unaware that if they want to follow the decisions made by the Wright County Board of Commissioners, they can be kept up to date on what topics will be discussed and what supporting materials come along with each item to help guide the decisions that the county board makes.

The county board meets for regularly scheduled meetings three times a month (one week is an informal workshop to discuss specific issues in greater detail to get additional background information) at 9 a.m. on Tuesdays.

Both the agendas for the upcoming meeting and live streaming of the meetings on Tuesdays can be accessed on the main page of the county website. In the middle of the homepage there is an “Agendas & Minutes” heading. Typically on Friday afternoons prior to a board meeting, the agenda and supporting document links are published under that heading. For example, at tomorrow’s meeting (Feb. 2), the county board will discuss several items, including committee member recommendations for the Wright County Economic Development Authority, prioritizing a list of deficient bridges in the county, discussing a timeline for a study regarding the moratorium placed on the construction and development of solar farms in the county that was approved at last week’s meeting, discussion of a resolution delegating the duties of the Auditor-Treasurer and Finance Director and approving the list of agenda items for the Feb. 9 county board workshop.

The regularly scheduled county board meetings are live-streamed on YouTube and can be accessed on the homepage of the county website. On the left side of the screen there is a link to “County Board Video.” The live stream typically begins a couple of minutes before 9 a.m. For those unable to watch the live stream, on the “Agendas & Minutes” tab there is a link to the right of each board agenda that resembles a TV that is uploaded Tuesday afternoon for on-demand viewing at any time.

If you’re interested in what is being discussed by the county board, these links can provide you with much of the information you need to know about what topics the county board will discuss and how the commissioners arrive at the decisions they make.
