Broken sprinkler shuts down Brighton council feed

A broken fire sprinkler in Brighton City Hall Tuesday night kept the city from streaming the City Council meeting live, but city officials said the recording of the meeting is online now.

Brighton Communications Kristen Chernosky said a piece of a fire sprinkler on the sixth floor failed about 4 p.m. Feb. 16.

"As a result, a bunch of water started leaking to the floors and the stairwell and from our sixth floor down to our fifth floor," Chernosky said. "So to a be safe and to make sure none of our network or electrical systems were damaged we shut everything down. We disconnected the network so there would not be any possible damage from the water. As a result of the network being down, we could not stream the City Council meeting on our Channel 8 channel."

Councilors did meet over the Zoom networking platform and a video of the meeting is available at https://brightonco.gov/378/Watch-City-Council-Meetings on Brighton's website.

"Everything is back to normal now," Chernosky said. " Everything is taken care of and things are drying out."

According to the council's agenda for the meeting, they were scheduled to vote on the second reading of changes to Brighton's animal codes and other health regulations as well as a first reading vote on a new development southeast of the intersection of Tower Road and Bridge Street.
