DIGITAL DISASTER: City Ward Reapportionment websites a mess!

COLUMBIA, 8/26/11  (Beat Byte) --  Trying to find information about the City of Columbia Ward Reapportionment process at the city's website?     
 
Good luck!

It has a confusing array of links, including two links that appear to go to the same information: the agenda and minutes for the committee's July 12 meeting:
 
Meeting minutes appear for the Committee's May meeting, but don't appear again until July 28
 
One link on that page says it best:  Bad URL. 
 
To make sense of it all, follow these links directly:
