Video Conferencing in Joshua Tree

Video Conferencing in Joshua Tree

At the January 29th Board meeting, the Supervisors approved a proposal from Supervisor Ramos to receive an economic analysis from the CEO to determine the feasibility of installing a video conferencing center in the Joshua Tree office of Supervisor Ramos.

A video conferencing system would allow residents of the Morongo Basin improved access to the San Bernardino County Board of Supervisors and other County meetings. During meetings, residents would be able to participate in the public comment portions through the video satellite imaging.

“This conference center would provide greater access to their government, which the residents of the Morongo Basin currently lack,” stated Supervisor Ramos.

On February 26th, the CEO reported back with the findings for establishing a video conferencing system in Joshua Tree. The Board voted to move forward with the project of installing this video conferencing site. It is Supervisor Ramos’ goal to have this system up and running in the next few months.
