Because they’ve mastered the art of public policy, the City of Wilmington has decided it needs something else:
(StarNews) The meeting will be held at 6 p.m. Thursday in the city council chambers . . is designed to get input from residents about the possibility of launching another public TV channel in addition to the government channel, GTV-Channel 8.
The Southeastern Alliance for Community Change has been pushing the city to explore adding a public access channel. Steve Lee, the secretary of the alliance’s board of directors, has described the proposed channel as “content produced by the community for the community.”
Short version, another government run tv channel at taxpayer expense. No discussion about costs, no real need, and yet no discussion about how out of touch the city was on the baseball issue that failed 70-30. Maybe the city should spend some time listening to the public and focus on being a more efficient, effective, pro-business government than wasting taxpayer resources on a new TV channel.
