The City Channel will not be televising City of Milwaukee meetings until a major equipment upgrade is completed later this month, according to City Clerk Jim Owczarski.

“As part of a three-year digital upgrade to our City Channel facilities, we are currently renovating and upgrading the equipment installed in our City Hall control room,” Mr. Owczarski said.

“This upgrade is in progress and will likely be completed the week of August 24, so we should be ready to resume telecasts by the time the full Common Council meets on September 1,” he said.

The City Channel can be accessed via Channel 25 on Time Warner Cable and on AT&T U-Verse Channel 99 in the City of Milwaukee. It can also be viewed via streaming video on the city website at, and archived meeting footage can also be accessed using the “Calendar” tab on the city’s online Legislative Research Center (Legistar) system —
