Congressman Peter Welch will join leaders of Vermont’s community media movement for a roundtable discussion of federal threats to public, educational, and government (PEG) access, local franchising authority, and open networks on Monday, April 8th.
Channel 17/Town Meeting Television is launching a new series to help Vermonters have a better understanding of the legislative process and how statewide legislation impacts local communities.
Our primary mission is to cover public meetings and events for Burlington, South Burlington, Essex, Essex Junction, Winooski, Williston, Colchester and St. George. We offer free training and equipment upon request. We will also air public issues programs submitted by the public. This work is funded by local government contributions and through franchise fees paid by local cable subscribers, as a percentage of their cable TV bills.
To help voters better understand the people and questions on their local ballots, Channel 17/Town Meeting Television will present a series of Town Meeting Forums throughout the month of February. Stream the forums LIVE at http://ow.ly/ObtY30nCrXp
