We are proud to announce a new change to LATV this coming this summer. We will be changing our channel name to "LATV Channels 10 & 20". This will replace "LATV 10 and Ranger 20". Our organization will still be known as "Lakes Area Community Television" and we are still operated under the Forest Lake Cable Commission.
Seeking Applicants For Vacant Forest Lake Cable Commission Position
The Scandia City Council is looking for a volunteer to serve as the City's citizen representative on the
Forest Lake Cable Commission to fill an unexpired term until December 31, 2016.
The cities of Forest Lake, Columbus, and Scandia established the six-member Forest Lake Cable Commission (FLCC) to set policy for the Lakes Area Community Television station. Each city appoints a city council member and citizen representative.
The Cable Commission meets monthly on the third Wednesday of every month at 4 p.m.
Public access station, Lakes Area Community Television, operates local cable channels 10 and 20. The station airs community shows, city and county meetings, and educational programming. It is a non-profit government entity that operates on a small, fiscally prudent budget funded by franchise fees given to its three local cities by cable provider, Midco. The station also earns necessary revenue from business sponsorship, DVD sales of programs, and by offering an affordable VHS/tape to DVD transfer service. For information on the station please visit www.latvten.com.
Application forms are available at the City office and on the website at www.ci.scandia.mn.us.
