Since hitting the Internet several months ago, the Ripon City Council meeting viewership reached an all-time high last month.

According to statistics provided by Information Systems Technician Dan Brannon, 53 people logged on to the city website ( for the July 15 meeting.

That’s the same meeting in which Dr. Glen Shirk and his wife Lois were recognized and elected leaders discussed moving their Aug. 5 meeting up two hours for National Night Out.

Prior to that, the previous two meetings – July 1 and June 17 – had the lowest viewership ever since launching on May 6. Try nine and eight folks tuning in, respectively.

Brannon will provide his YouTube video report on the video stream statistics at Tuesday’s 7 p.m. open session in the Council Chambers, 259 W. Wilma Ave.

Those watching the council meetings can do so by logging on to the City of Ripon channel page or direct links (Facebook shares), YouTube or Smart Phone apps.

Other ways have been through online search engines such as Google, Bing, and Yahoo.

The council meetings have been viewed 183 times for a total of 1,114 viewing minutes since May 20, Brannon said in his report.
