Salineville going on FB Live

Due to the coronavirus orders, Salineville Mayor Linda Adams announced Thursday the council meeting set for 6 p.m. Monday will be broadcast on Facebook Live. In person attendance of the meeting will be limited only to elected officials, the fiscal officer, legal counsel, a police officer and the reporter. Through Facebook Live on the Salineville village Facebook page, everyone will be able to view the meeting. However, Facebook Live will not be used interactively, so it will not be monitored for questions or comments during the meeting. Instead those wishing to participate can submit their concerns or questions in writing prior to the meeting and it will be read by Adams during the meeting. Letters can be placed in the drop box at village hall addressed to the attention of the mayor and the council until 5 p.m. the day of the council meeting. Adams requests people not use Facebook or Facebook Messenger for questions or comments, because those are used for informational purposes only. The change to using Facebook Live for meetings is a new experience for all of us during these difficult times and Adams said they will continue to use this for the duration of Ohio’s stay at home and social distancing orders. However, once those orders expire, council meetings will go back to the normal format. Additionally, she said the new procedures apply only to meetings of village council. All other meetings of village boards and committees shall be conducted in the same manner as in the past.
