CouncilPhone is foobar

Anyone trying to be engaged in Los Angeles City government by phone this week probably already knows that you are out of luck. CouncilPhone is dead-meat.

Doesn't the City want our participation?

Trying to find out what the problem is before the Planning Commission hearing on the Bicycle Plan this morning ends. (ugh)

UPDATE: Francisco Montano, CouncilPhone admin says "we had a major system failure with our CouncilPhone system last Tuesday Oct. 26, we're working on a solution to restore full capacity of the CP system, and the only solution was to purchase a whole new system. We have limited CP service for the City Council meetings only. My estimated time for full CP capacity could be 2 to 3 weeks for installation and training. I'll put the City Planning Commission on CP as soon it is up and running. Sorry for the inconvenience."
