Innisfil council meeting postponed due to technical difficulties

·1 min read

Innisfil council will have to pick up business at its next meeting.

On Nov. 11, the town’s regular council meeting was ended early as the online meeting faced technical difficulties.

Some residents reported problems viewing the council meeting, which was streamed on the town’s YouTube channel.

At around 7:20 p.m., YouTube reported a worldwide outage issue that was preventing users from watching videos. The issue has since been fixed.

Council attempted to continue using the video-conference program Zoom, but that, too, was disrupted by individuals who joined the meeting and made loud noises and put heart emojis on the screen.

The meeting was adjourned, and unfinished business items were moved to the agenda of the next regular council meeting, which is Nov. 25.
