Orange County, VA – The County of Orange has partnered with CivicPlus to implement its CivicClerk agenda and meeting management solution. This platform, which was purchased with Federal CARES Act relief funds, is an advancement of the Board of Supervisors’ priority to develop, implement, and manage strategies for the “Digital Citizen - Anytime, Anywhere, All Citizens,” in the areas of access, transactions, information, engagement, and security.
By implementing CivicClerk, the County has streamlined and automated its internal agenda process for Board of Supervisors’ meetings, while further enabling convenient access to citizens. Through the CivicClerk public portal on the County’s website, agendas, packets, minutes, and videos are easily accessible in one location. CivicClerk also provides the capability to continue streaming Board meetings for citizens to view remotely or to watch on-demand.
While the CivicPlus Agenda Center formerly used by the County provided access to citizens, CivicClerk offers additional enhancements to the internal agenda development process by establishing electronic submission and approvals of agenda items to save time and resources and to improve efficiency. CivicClerk also boasts a greater search capability and a more user-friendly interface, among other benefits. Citizens can access the enhanced public portal where they can download meeting materials and manage their desired email notifications.
Board of Supervisors’ meetings have already navigated to the CivicClerk platform, while implementation is still underway for the Planning Commission. To view Planning Commission meetings and materials, as well as the archive of past Board of Supervisors’ meetings and materials, citizens can still access the Agenda Center from the County’s website.
Those interested in receiving email notifications should visit the public portal and select the “Manage” button under My Subscriptions in order to create an account.
