A hacker temporarily halted Wednesday night's Danbury City Council virtual meeting.
Mayor Joe Cavo says they were about three-quarters of the way through the meeting when someone requested a cheeseburger, called out council members by name, and used inappropriate language in posts. The Zoom meeting was stopped and a new link was sent to members and department leaders. The Council meeting continued after about a 10 minute delay.
Video of the first part of the meeting was removed from streaming sites due to inappropriate language. The City's YouTube video starts with item 7 on the agenda. The Granicus video on the City's website has the middle part of the meeting edited out.
Public zoom links had not been sent out by the Council and Board of Ed following a racist remark and pornographic video that shut down a Board of Ed meeting last summer. Wednesday night's zoom link was available on the agenda for the first time since July 2020. Previous agendas only included a link to the YouTube live stream.
