Binghamton City Council Meeting Televised Without Sound
Binghamton city lawmakers may have had some important things to say during their most recent meeting but people watching the session on TV couldn't hear them.
City officials say the video of last Wednesday's business meeting as shown on Spectrum Cable was fine but there was no sound.
Councilman Giovanni Scaringi said Time Warner Cable had provided a person to ensure the council meetings could be viewed on the system. Spectrum, which acquired Time Warner, recently advised the city that the technician would no longer be provided.
Scaringi said it "looks like there are still some technical kinks that have to be worked out."
Binghamton city clerk Leighton Rogers said he did not know what caused the lack of audio. He said he suspected there may have been some sort of "error on Spectrum's end."
Rogers said a video recording of the council meeting does have sound. There are no plans to post the video - with sound - on the city government website.
There were no controversial issues being considered at the business meeting. City officials say they haven't been inundated with complaints from cable customers about the lack of audio.
