City council meeting

Monday’s special 10 a.m. Lincoln City Council meeting was not accessible to the public on the City’s website due to technical problems on the streaming provider’s end.

AGENDA PACKET

The meeting was available on Channel 4 and council chambers stayed open with social distancing being observed.

Problems with a streaming service the City uses caused the meeting to not be streamed on the web, leaving a multitude of citizens wondering what was happening.

Lincoln City IT Department’s Tony LaSoya said the vendor is having an issue with the encoding and is working on the problem.

The meeting is over and is available as a recording on the City’s website.

MEETING RECORDING 

One Lincoln City resident referred to the meeting as “the most important meeting of our lifetime,” and was not happy for the City’s technical difficulties and her inability to watch online.

According to sources at the meeting, the City of Lincoln City ratified an emergency declaration specific to Lincoln City. Also discussed was a way to get information to citizens when utilities go down like they did during the fire.

Tonight’s scheduled City Council meeting has been moved to next Monday evening.

  1. I was wondering why no one was at the meeting. This meeting was very important to me so my girlfriend Lisa and I had to go to the chamber meeting hall.

    I was appalled that no one wrote an email to the City Council. There were so many people that complained about the lack evacuation information but only 2 people came to the meeting. I know the time of day was a factor for those who work but the retirement community should have been at this meeting.

    My moto is……if you complain about something………do something about it!

  2. All of the meetings are on the City website. There is a meeting on Monday at 10 am and one at 6 pm. Please attend or at least email your City Council and let them know your concerns..

  3. Had NO internet,I’ve been to many council meetings,but since I do not have a “smart” phone,had no way to know about this “special” meeting!!!

  4. self righteous and condescending. I’ve been to plenty of council meetings and 10am is ludicrous.
    Maybe this snob goes when it suits her, but I’ve not seen any “regulars”
    at any meeting, except for the newspaper guy.
    We have gotten a law passed, and a stop sign at a dangerous intersection.
    What have you done?
