In response to the temporary closure of Cumberland City Hall to public traffic in order to help control the spread of Coronavirus disease, the Mayor and City Council’s regular meetings are going to be livestreamed to a special Facebook page. The page is being created by city staff in the spirit of transparent government to keep interested city residents and stakeholders informed about public actions of the council. The page will also allow the City to live-stream bid openings, board and commission meetings, and other public business as the need arises. The official city website at http://www.cumberlandmd.gov/ will also feature a link to the live-stream page.
Citizens who wish to follow the page can access it at fb.me/CityHallLiveStream and click “Like.” Messages about page content can be sent to m.me/CityHallLiveStream
The Mayor and City Council encourage everyone to comply with the Governor’s directives and remain vigilant and educated on news pertaining to the virus. The local informational clearinghouse is the Allegany County Health Department.
