Thurston County Government is coordinating online meetings as a way to help citizens stay engaged in local government while observing the Governor's Stay at Home proclamation (PDF).
Please Note: Some meetings have returned to in person at the County Courthouse.
Participate in a Meeting
Some meetings have returned to in person at the County Courthouse. Use the meeting link if you will join online video and audio with your computer or smart phone. Use the phone number if you plan to join the audio portion only, using a phone. Please note: If using a phone or smart phone, your number will be visible to everyone on the call.
What to Expect
Learning the technology
If you haven't used online meeting services regularly, you may find it takes a bit of practice. County staff tested various services and found that computers, audio, video, smart phones and other devices or components sometimes don't work the way you hope. Be patient with yourself and others. The first few times may be a bit clunky.
Rules of Civil Particpation
Please be civil and courteous when engaging with others online. These meetings are recorded. To learn more, watch Thurston County Commissioners discuss civility on Youtube.
