Dear Readers …in previous posts this writer alerted you to the sound missing for the Rev. Hunsaker and the Mayor’s pre- proclamation statement on March 15, 2010…I also alerted you to the missing hour + of the new commission’s Organizational Meeting last night March 17, 2010…and today the problems continue…

This morning I sent an e-mail to PIO D’Oliveira… in a reply that begins from a response to a PRR pickup…(read bottom to top)…

Good Morning
I see the Town website video stops at 3 hrs for the organiztional meeting last night March 17 2010.
If you do not have a DVD back up I do have it on my DVR and you can come and get it off to a camera or other device
This was done by the CIC a few years back and and I believe turned over to the Town when a similar situation occurred.
As for the minutes I have Ms Trevarthens list online as well as she has it for June.
I am leaving town tomorrow night and will be gone for an extended period so please let me know if you need the video.
Thanks Barbara Cole

Yes, the sound cut out about one minute into the meeting due to a technical problem with the AFV audio control button. The sound was fine when the meeting started and then just stopped during the reverend’s invocation.

I thought it might be an issue with the podium mic or the fact that he rarely speaks into the mic directly. Once he was done and the mayor started talking, the audio was again fine (so I thought it was the podium/speaker).

A few seconds later, the audio cut out again while the mayor was speaking. I realized then it was an overall problem and not just the podium. I was scrambling at that point. It took me about 40 seconds to correct it.

I do know that  a few commissioners have contacted the town today as well… as of yet they received no response…as I also have none thus far…

A look online to check and see if the situation was corrected produced further concern and fodder …take your pick…

The Town website now shows the following as of 1:36 pm… under Upcoming Events Re-Broadcast Special Organization Meeting March 18, 2010 5:58 pm (HUH?)

Why would you broadcast 2 min. before the top of the hour?

Will it be the whole meeting…Hmmmm?…

Under that is the following…

Special Organizational Meeting March 17, 2010 02h 53m…so the org. mtg has now lost 7 minutes from before!…

Under that is the Swearing In meeting

Town Commission Meeting March 15, 2010 04h 00m…so the less than 1 hour meeting has now added 3 hours!… And when it is loaded up…you see 4 hours of Town scroll!…

This is not a good way to start out when a new majority is in and job security is out!…

more to come….at least from this site!…
