Shelburne Selectboard meeting technical problems

There were technical problems with the camera that recorded the Jan. 25 meeting. There are several interruptions to the video over the first half hour that required stopping and restarting the camera. After not being able to find a solution to the video problems it was decided to continue recording with no view of the board members or other speakers but still recording the audio. We apologize for any inconvenience.
