In regards to the hacking conviction, the City Clerk sometimes uploads large public documents to the SIRE agenda system and only emails the link to selected members of the "accredited media". The link is not shared on the City's Council calendar until a few hours later.

With the RSS feed, I automatically download the agenda and an alert is sent to my smartphone. I often tweet that the agenda is available and the public can view it.

Council agendas are the most public of public documents.

Here's the link to the RSS feed, it's a great way of tracking documents and following public meetings.

On May 20, 2015, Council meet in Closed Session at the request of the City Clerk for a "Security Session" during which time, the City Clerk noted that I was in violation of the City's website terms of use.

Specifically, this section:

Unless prior written permission is obtained from the City, the Content's owner and the City's licensors, You may not reproduce, publish, copy, link to, frame, tag, embed, merge, modify, recompile, license, distribute, sell, store in an electronic retrieval system, download (except by the browser of a single user) or transmit, in whole or in part, in any form or by any means whatsoever, be they physical, electronic or otherwise, the Portal and/or the Content.

Based upon this "hacking" conviction, my media access to the hardwire connections which I use for streaming was revoked - ending my ability to livestream meetings. Hence, when you see the City say I have access to the wifi, they are being disingenuous as they are aware the media hardwire access is the matter at issue and not the wifi.
