Minutes - October 19, 2016


Chair Bill Butler called the meeting to order at 6:02 PM.

Present were:  Bill Butler, Brett Jones, Melissa Johnson, and Stu Marckoon

Minutes – July 18, 2016 – Brett moved to approve the minutes as written.  Bill 2nd.  Vote in favor was 2-0.

CTV Operations Manager – Stu introduced Melissa Johnson as the new CTV System Operations manager. He said the Board of Selectmen appointed her on October 13th.  Mrs. Johnson told the committee a little bit about her background with computers and audio productions.

School Wiring – Brett said there has been a lot of back & forth with Connectivity Point regarding wiring up the school.  He said it would be a big expense to be able to televise meetings through a closed circuit system to other classrooms, and it would be just as easy to watch the telecast on the CTV channel instead, though there would be a delay. 

Bill said there still seems to be some confusion on what is proposed.  Brett said the desire is for cameras in the gym with audio connection, a Nexus switcher and monitors. 

Bill said we should get in touch with CPI in regard to the Nexus.  Brett said the new generation of Nexus is more expensive.  Bill suggested that a final plan and price are needed.

Brett moved to have Stu do up a proposal, send it to the Tech Committee, and once approved to send it to Connectivity Point for a price.  Bill 2nd.  Vote in Favor was 3-0.

Apple Account – Melissa agreed to upgrade the Mac computer by getting an account with Apple under the town’s name. 

Next Meeting – The next meeting will be on November 16, 2016 at 5:30 PM at the town hall.

There being no further business, the meeting adjourned at 6:20 PM.

Respectfully submitted,

Stu Marckoon, Adm. Asst. to the Selectmen
