The leaders of several Ulster County towns are pressing the city of Kingston to re-establish its Public Access Commission so that town meetings and other events can be shown live on Time Warner Cable’s Channel 23.
Rosendale Supervisor Jeanne Walsh said last week that she was among six supervisors to ask the city to revive the commission. The others were James Quigley of Ulster, John Coutant of Esopus, Gary Bellows of Hurley, Paul Landi of the town of Kingston and Michael Warren or Marbletown.
Walsh said the six wrote a letter to Kingston Mayor Shayne Gallo, asking, “How do we get this up and running in a healthy way?”
She said the channel could be used to show not only public meetings, but also events like parades.
She said broadcasts would have to be approved in advance by each town. “It wouldn’t be a situation where anybody could post anything they want,” she said.
