Webcasting problems meant that members of the public could not watch the Executive Board meeting live today, however a record did take place.

Wrexham Council released the following statement after many raised the issue on social media. Some more cynical observed that it had occurred at a higher profile meeting than usual, and questioned transparency – however as one Council insider observed at the meeting break, ‘does that mean to say all Council meetings before webcasting were not transparent?’

“We are currently unable to webcast live due to technical difficulties and apologise for any inconvenience.

“Our providers have said that they have discovered an issue with the webcasting software which has affected dual language clients. They have now developed a fix which they will be installing today, and we are hopeful that it does not occur again.”

“They have advised us that although the meeting is not able to be broadcast live, the meeting is being recorded and they will be able to publish for viewing on the Council’s website when the meeting finishes.”
