Want to stay connected with the City of Hercules? Starting this month, City Council and Planning Commission meetings will only be available through the City’s website and for a pilot period will no longer be available via cable channels 28 (Comcast) and 99 (ATT). You can stream the meetings live on your computer, smart TV, or other device at the time of the meetings. You can access the meetings through the City’s website and the Meetings & Agendas tab, or by going to, or by clicking here: City of Hercules Meetings.

After the meeting concludes, it is available to view on demand through the same link with the individual agenda items bookmarked for ease of navigation and access. Interested in only one item on the agenda? No need to watch the entire meeting using the bookmarks.
