City staff offers Pool Permit Workshop; checklist and video available

*** UPDATED POST ***

City staff successfully held a Pool Permit Workshop on Tuesday, explaining the process and answering questions.

Here's some useful information and links for those who couldn't attend (either virtually or in-person), or even those who did make it and want reminders:

 

*** ORIGINAL POST ***

Building a pool is a process – and, before you can cool off, it’s important to do it right.

That’s why the City of Milton is conducting a Pool Permit Workshop this coming Tuesday from 11 a.m. through 1 p.m. After people claimed the limited number of available in-person spaces soon after they became available, the City decided to open up the program to anyone else – virtually.

This free public educational session will touch on how pool permitting works in Milton. Staff will walk attendees through what the City Code says about pool permits and explain how the process works.

If you have questions about the workshop, email City of Milton Permit Technician Susan Wilmath at susan.wilmath@cityofmiltonga.us.

This event will be streamed live on Zoom (see more info below) as well as the City of Milton's Facebook page, https://www.facebook.com/thecityofmiltonga/. The first hour -- between 11 a.m. and noon -- will be a presentation only. The plan is for there to be a half-hour break, followed by a Q&A component from 12:30 to 1 p.m.

In addition to in-person attendees, questions can be posed over Zoom as well. People are also welcome to ask using the comments' function of Facebook or the "chat" function of Zoom, and City staff will do our best to give answers as soon as possible (though possibly not until after the meeting).

To watch the workshop on Facebook, go to https://www.facebook.com/thecityofmiltonga/ and -- if it doesn't appear automatically atop the page -- use the Facebook Live feature.

If you’d like to watch and "participate" in the workshop via Zoom, here’s how:

 

BEFORE THE WORKSHOP...

If you haven't already, you can download Zoom right now and don't have to wait until right before the meeting.

On a computer
1. In a Web browser, go to https://zoom.us/download, click on "Zoom Client for Meetings," and follow the prompts.
2. In a Web browser, you can click on this webinar link -- https://zoom.us/j/96393973391 -- and again, follow the prompts. This should launch the app.

On a smartphone
1. Go to your "App Store" (or wherever you get applications), enter Zoom, and download/get the "ZOOM Cloud Meetings" app.

 

THE DAY OF THE WORKSHOP...

Give yourself at least 10 minutes before the meeting starts to log on and make sure the technology is working for you.

 

'JOIN' the workshop

On a computer using Zoom:
1. Click on the meeting link: https://zoom.us/j/96393973391
(Or enter this Webinar ID in your Zoom app: 963 9397 3391)
2. If you've already downloaded the Zoom app, it should launch automatically.
3. If you haven't downloaded the Zoom app yet, a small application file will open. It may take a little time to process.

On a smartphone using Zoom:
1. Click on the meeting link: https://zoom.us/j/96393973391
2. If you've already downloaded the Zoom app, it should launch automatically.
3. If you haven't downloaded the Zoom app yet, you'll be prompted to download it when you click on the link. Download the app.

On a phone not using Zoom:
Dial this number: 1-929-205-6099. The Webinar ID is 963 9397 3391.

You should be able to hear the meeting (once it starts), even if you won't have all the same options as someone who downloaded Zoom. 

 

FOLLOW and PARTICIPATE in the workshop

On a computer or smartphone using the Zoom app:
All citizens will be muted until the Q&A component of the workshop. At this time, City staff will invite people to ask questions over Zoom. Here is how to do so:

1. Click on "Raise Hand" in the Zoom app.
2. The moderator will call on people based on the order in which they "raised their hand."
3. Each questioner should unmute yourself and then speak. Please state your name and address before giving your comment.
4. People will have a limited amount of time to speak so others can get the chance.

On a phone not using the Zoom app:

You will be able to ask a question the same times as those using the Zoom app. Here's how to do it:
1. To make a "comment," dial *9. (This is equivalent to the "Raise Hand" feature.)
2. Wait to be called upon. The moderator may reference the last 3 digits of your phone number.
3. In order to speak, you'll need to unmute yourself by pressing *6.

On whatever device
• Once the Q&A portion concludes for a particular item, no one (outside City staff) will be able to make remarks.

If you have technical or procedural questions before or during the meeting, you can ask them using the Q&A component in the Zoom app.
