City Council takes pride in its open form of government and is pleased to provide state-of-the-art technology to assist the public in tracking and retrieving legislation.
Below you will find three tabs: Legislation, Video Streaming, and Meeting Calendar. Please click on each tab and view some information we've assembled about using the LIC.
Note: Official, certified copies can be obtained in person from the City Clerk's Office.
In the LIC, the Legislation page is a common starting point for users. You may search the legislation database by keyword, by year, by type, and more by means of an advanced search interface (you will see the Advanced Search link to the right of the search controls). More detailed help with searching is available here .After you initiate a search, your results are returned in rows below the search interface. Legislative File numbers are hyperlinked to Detail pages.
A Legislative Detail page contains a wealth of information about a specific piece of legislation - sponsors, titles, committee of control, etc. Any attachments to the legislation are available here.
The Legislative Detail page is where you can track Actions taken as the file moves through the legislative process. You can see how votes were cast by clicking Action Details. All details of the meeting are linked to - click Meeting Details.
After meetings take place, the City Clerk's office works hard to edit and archive Meeting Video. When the video clip has been archived, you will find a link on the Legislative Detail page. For more help with video, please go to the Video Streaming tab.
In the LIC, video is available two ways - Live Video Streaming, and Archived Video.
While Council meetings are in progress, links become active on the Live Video Streaming page . Click the links, and a new window will open containing the video player (see player configuration info below), and also the relevant agenda document (in PDF format).
After meetings take place, the City Clerk's office works hard to edit and archive Meeting Video. When video clips has been archived, you will find links on Legislative Detail pages. Links to archived video clips are to be found everywhere legislative files are listed.
Videos are streamed using Windows Media Player (WMP). For many users, WMP should be configured correctly - however, we intend to provide as many configuration resources as possible here.
Pittsburgh City Council meetings that have already been broadcast are later archived on the Calendar page . Links to Meeting Details, Agendas, Minutes, and Video are made available for each meeting after they have been prepared by the City Clerk's Office.
