Does Lansing (MI) City Council website work for you?

Now that I have a little more time, I'm trying to stay more informed about what is happening here in mid-Michigan where I live.  It's almost impossible to follow the activities of the Lansing City Council.  That's really disheartening.  Here's what I've tried:

  • City Council broadcasts on our local cable.  This is really hard to follow.  You don't have an agenda or any of the background.  The council sessions seem to be dominated by local citizens who speed way too much time trying to get their time before the camera.
  • Local newspaper coverage of city council proceedings.  It's non-existent.  Why is that?  Nobody interested?  Or is it the local paper, the Lansing State Journal-a Gannett newspaper, making a judgment about what it feels is important.  Whatever their attitude, it needs to be reevaluated.  Readers in the city are being shortchanged.
  • City Council website.  I have an Apple iBook.  It's about six months old and I use a variety of browsers.  None of them will fully open the City Council portion of the website. 
I'm asking for blogosphere help.  Can you open the Lansing (MI) City Council site with your computer?  Am I doing something wrong with my browsers?
