In February, 2003, the City of Burien launched its government channel, TBC21, on Cable Channel 21. The purpose of the channel is to distribute a variety of information about government, its programs, services and concerns. Our objectives are to provide information about programs and services offered by government departments, agencies, boards, commissions and government-supported agencies.
We hope to expand citizen awareness of government and its decision-making processes by exposing citizens to live and tape delayed government meetings, to enhance existing public information materials by using cable television as a public information tool and to use the channel to disseminate public safety information in emergency situations.
In May of 2009 the City of Burien moved into the new city hall/regional library building which is located downtown at 400 SW 152nd St, in Burien Town Square. Both City Council and Planning Commission meetings are held in the first floor Multi Purpose Room. City Council meetings are held the 1st, 2nd and 4th Mondays of the month. Planning Commission meets the 2nd and 4th Tuesday of the month. Meetings that fall on a holiday are canceled.
These meetings are broadcasted live on TBC21, then rebroadcasted at the same time everyday during the same week of the meeting.
2015 and older meetings can be found at our old site at http://burienmedia.org. Eventually they will be migrated to our new site.
Streaming videos of live meetings can be found on our new streaming and video-on-demand service at http://burien.vod.castus.tv/vod
