For Immediate Release: Nov. 15, 2010



Web broadcast of Goodyear council meeting to be delayed



GOODYEAR, ARIZ. (Nov. 15, 2010) Granicus, the company that broadcasts and archives Goodyear City Council meetings on the web, suffered a catastrophic failure of their automated systems in San Francisco last night. Municipalities and organizations nationwide have been impacted by the technical difficulties at Granicus.


Because of the failure of the Granicus automated systems, Goodyear will not be able to offer live streaming video simulcast of tonight's city council meeting. However, Granicus representatives assure city officials that the video uplink and archive video from tonight's council meeting will be available for viewing as soon as possible. For the moment, however, Granicus is unable to broadcast video live over the Internet.


?As previously emailed, we are experiencing a major storage system failure," Sherif Agib, Granicus Customer Service Manager with Granicus, wrote today in an email to Goodyear city officials. "Though you are able to conduct live meetings, citizens and internal viewers will be unable to view the meeting in progress or view archived items.?


This is an issue with Granicus, and is affecting government nationwide. Goodyear's  in-house systems are fully functional and city staff is prepared for the council meeting and other operations scheduled in the Justice Center today. 


Additional information will be provided as soon as details are available from Granicus.
