Live Streaming City Council Meetings

The City of Bessemer is committed to providing a more open government. We are experimenting with live streaming our City Council Meetings onto our facebook page (https://www.facebook.com/bessemermich).

They are filmed directly to facebook and you can watch them in real time. Please bear with us if any technical difficulties happen during this new endeavor.  We will also be hosting, when possible, the archived versions of the video streams by visiting the meeting archives on our website here.
