Menomonie City Council 4/20/2020

Tonight's meeting was held virtually on the Zoom platform because of the COVID-19 pandemic. A recording of the Zoom meeting will be available after 10 PM. 

Adventures in covering Zoom meetings continue - some of the recording will be a little rough and the first part will have the colors mapped incorrectly as I worked through some of the settings to collect the video in OBS Studio on my end. An official recording of the meeting will be available from the city later.

One other interesting aspect of the meeting is that some of the City Council members did not have power during much of the meeting due to the storm that went through North  Menomonie this afternoon.
