On January 15th, multiple meetings were held between Midcontinent Communications executives who traveled from Cambridge, Minnesota and from Midcontinent's Sioux Falls, South Dakota headquarters to meet with city administrators, elected officials, and representatives from the Forest Lake Cable Commission and Lakes Area Community Television. Meetings were organized by the Cable Commission, which is a Joint Powers group representing the cities of Scandia, Forest Lake and Columbus.
It was an opportunity to work on local LATV cable 10 and 20 technical improvements, share updates on the joint city supported Midcontinent broadband grant (not yet awarded at press time), and discuss each city's priorities for cable build out, including the latest new residential and business areas for cable expansion. This past December new cable enabled Lakes Area Community Television to start airing city meetings live for the first time from the Forest Lake City Center. In meetings with Midcontinent, both Columbus and Scandia also discussed airing meetings live on LATV 10, the public access government and community channel. Meetings will continue to be rebroadcast at other times as well.
"The Cable Commission plans to meet with Midcontinent again in late spring," says Cable Commission Chair and Mayor of Scandia, Randall Simonson. "Together our three cities are placing a high priority on cable and broadband expansion."
