Audio made available from the city is a single, badly distorted 6 hour file, and the video of the 7pm session alone is more than 3 Gigabytes to download. Here we have reasonably sized segments of both audio and video that can be easily played, downloaded or shared.
Above, we have the first of the public comments, from a homeless veteran who didn't give his name. He mentions a councilperson who "went hatemongering door to door and who should recuse himself from this vote". The veteran, pictured here, was then silenced on that topic by the mayor. The public comments are filled with insights, and our elected official reveal the limit of their ability to maintain a civil front near the end, when they assume they have closed the door on this minor attempt at relief for out most marginalized citizens.
There are 4 video files and 4 audio files:

(1) The initial presentation of the proposed amendments to the camping ordinance 49:48 posted here

(2) Public Comments 55:48

(3) Public Comments 31:29

(4) Discussion by council and staff, followed their vote 52:43

The attached audio files have slightly better sound, but the sections are parsed differently.

(1) The initial presentation 48:57

(2) Public Comments 55:26

(3) Public Comments, Discussion by council and staff 43:04

(4) Discussion by council and staff, followed their vote 40:10
