2-13-2020 UPDATE- It appears the city has put up a valid video of Tuesday’s city council meeting so I will watch it and report back later today.
Pictured below are city clerk Bernie Harris beginning the livestream of last night’s city council meeting and on the right is how it appears on the city’s YouTube channel.
The video they have up is worthless. The meeting lasted 35 minutes not 15.29 so over half is missing. The first three minutes of the video are before the meeting begins and the last three minutes are after the meeting ended. And the few minutes that are available are broken and unintelligible.
There will be more tomorrow.
**** According to her updated docket, the two most serious charges against Mackenzie Brant for aggravated assault were changed at her preliminary hearing this afternoon. One was withdrawn and one was changed to a lower charge.
*** Mackenzie Brant, who was arrested and charged on November 24th of last year after celebrating her 25th birthday at Tellus 360, is scheduled to have her preliminary hearing today at 2:00 pm before District Judge Robert A Herman, Jr. She has been out of jail since her arrest after a bail bondsman put up her $150,000 cash bail.

** They managed to livestream today’s Black History Month Flag Raising at noon (click here).
* It is unbelievably ridiculous to me that Lancaster can’t depend on the city to do their job. Much smaller cities around the country have someone on staff who knows how to push the on button for streaming.
They are lying. Pure and simple.

ANOTHER LIVESTREAM FAIL
Yes, it was another livestream fail for city council last night. It was the sound. The sound would be good for four or five seconds and then it would be gone for 10 seconds with the loading circle going around. And every now and again it would switch to the screen at the left above stating the livestream was offline with a picture of I believe clerk Bernie Harris originally trying to turn it on. It was impossible to follow or understand. Please check back later today.
