As we begin negotiations with Verizon for a new contract in 2021, we want to understand how residents might see our ability to provide programming change, and how residents might be more involved in content creation. Contract negotiations are an opportunity to ask for increased funding, for both operating expenses and equipment costs. This committee will meet monthly through the early summer of 2021 to consider possibilities for expanding our services. Those selected to the committee will be expected to attend all meetings. The general public will be invited to observe and contribute to these meetings. These conversations will inform the negotiations and ultimate request that the town delivers to Verizon in 2021 and Comcast in 2026.
