"I am very much looking forward to it," Mayor McCormick said. "I think it will open up doors to more people in our community. I am looking forward to tonight's test run. I see a good future in this program."

Hentrich thanked Matt Darr of Williams Office Supply, Jarvis Swope of the City of Alton, and Rich Beran, the Godfrey Village Engineer, for their assistance in the setup of the live stream.

Hentrich also thanked Mayor McCormick for always being supportive of Riverbender.com and stated that his willingness to have open meetings says a lot about how he runs the village.

"The other benefit of the live stream is that people can watch it without any concerns of COVID-19 exposure," Hentrich said. "Also, people can watch it remotely on their own time for free using the on-demand video section of Riverbender.com."
