WIVB-TV reported yesterday that Mayor Byron Brown revealed the debut of a new video series called “City of Buffalo Behind the Scenes Uncut Videos.” The videos will be posted on Brown’s Facebook page on Tuesdays and Saturdays, and are shot by city employees on their cell phones.

The goal is to provide residents with background about various city services. Here is the first video from the Buffalo Mayor's Facebook...

This video features Office of New Americans Director Jessica Lazarin discussing the importance of filling out the 2020 Census questionnaire.

“These videos are yet another resource for residents interested in learning a little bit more about our community and how to play a role in improving our neighborhoods,” Brown says. “I thank members of my Administration for participating in this innovative way to keep residents plugged in on the inner workings of City Hall as we run government remotely.”

Brown says future videos will discuss topics like keeping water clean, proper recycling tote placement, and other events fostered by the City of Buffalo.

This will give viewers the opportunity for their children, as well as themselves an inside look at the city where they grow-up and live.
