Recording of City Council meeting fails

N-City-logo-web

The Cedar Springs City Council voted last month to purchase the necessary equipment to begin recording all City Council meetings and workshops and putting them on Youtube for the public to view. Last Thursday’s meeting was slated to be the first meeting to be recorded, but it is unavailable for public viewing now or in the future due to technical difficulties, according to City Manager Thad Taylor.

“Our WiFi was not working properly, which led to gaps in the video. Basically we could only make clips from gap to gap, (with) obviously no continuity,” explained Taylor. “Our IT company has a fix for that, and it should be corrected soon.”

He said the biggest issue is that the system only makes video clips up to one hour in duration. “That was never disclosed prior to purchasing, so the system we have doesn’t meet our needs,” said Taylor. “I will take the issue up with the manufacturer.”

City Councilor Rose Powell told the Post she understands it was a mistake, but feels that they should still put up what they have, even if it’s not complete.

    Posting a video of the meeting filled with gaps could very well start another conspiracy theory against our City Manager. The explanation given should be sufficient for Ms. Powell and the community.
