There unfortunately continues to be many unanswered questions circulating around the Amherst community regarding the recent decision by the Town Manager and Select Board regarding the proposed changes in how the Town contracts Amherst Media for the Cable Access Public, Education & Government (PEG) services.
While the Town will be providing an on-line opportunity for the community to give input to the RFP, we feel there exists a real need for a community dialogue on such a monumental change in policy.
Amherst Media is holding a forum in its studio to help answer these questions. A panel is being formulated to hopefully present the range of perspectives on this issue. The Town Manager and Select Board have been invited to participate.
Our studio has limited seating capacity but the 40 or so seats will go to those who arrive first. Audience questions will be solicited as part of the presentation. This forum will be recorded for future cable and online viewing.
