General Information for accessing audio and video recordings of Geneva meetings:
Files are provided in a directory view for ease of downloading. The directory structure is as follows:
CC = City Council Meetings
CODEENF = Code Enforcement Hearings
COW = Committee of the Whole Meetings
HPC = Historic Preservation Commission Meetings
MHB = Mental Health Board Meetings
MISC = Miscellaneous Meetings & Hearings
PLANCOMM = Plan Commission Meetings
ZBA = Zoning Board of Appeals Meetings
Most meeting audio files are named by their type (ex. "cc") and their date in YYYY-MMDD format ("2010-0401"). A Committee of the Whole Meeting from July 22, 2009 would be named: cow-2009-0722
All files can be played directly from the website by double-clicking the file name, or saved to your machine by right-clicking and choosing "Save As."
