City of Charleston Clerk of Council Jennifer Cook said, “As City Council met virtually over the past year, we found that citizens were at times more engaged than ever. It is clear there is a desire for citizens to be able to watch meetings online and submit public comment through alternate means, and we intend to carry this practice forward, even as Covid-19 restrictions are lifted and Council meetings resume in person.”
