Minutes - May 9, 2017 (Draft, subject to correction)

The special meeting came to order at 12:30 PM at the Lamoine Town Hall.

Present were:  Merle Bragdon, Brett Jones and Stu Marckoon

Sewall Company – Stu reported that he spoke with a representative of the Sewall Company, and he would be available to meet with the committee next week.  After discussion it was agreed to try to plan a meeting on Tuesday, May 16, 2017 at 11:00 AM.

Charter/Spectrum/Time Warner Franchise Agreement – Stu reported the gentleman from Sewall Company had suggested holding off on the franchise agreement until after meeting with him.  The group briefly discussed the density requirement, the 125-foot drop length, setting the franchise fee at 3-percent (the current rate), and looking at the PEG channel language.

School Update – Stu reported that he thinks the issue with getting video to the Nexus unit is the lack of a routing switcher and has been talking with Connectivity Point about that.  He said he plans to re-contact them shortly.

Cable TV Operations Manager – The committee did not oppose recommending to the Board of Selectmen that Justin Zinke be appointed as the Cable TV Operations manager.

There being no further business, the meeting adjourned at 12:50 PM.

Respectfully submitted,

Stu Marckoon, Adm. Asst. to the Selectmen
