Comcast representatives made an untelevised appearance before Dennis Township Committee Aug. 5 to discuss bringing local access television to the township. The proposal, to be included as part of Comcast’s renegotiation with the township for local franchise renewal, would not require a significant financial outlay by Dennis taxpayers, a point brought out by Committeeman Frank Germanio. He asked how much it would cost?
Channel capacity would be included in an agreement reached between the company and the township with the only costs to the township arising from initial hardware installation.
A PowerPoint demonstration was presented by Denise Rolfe, director of Community Broadcast Sales for TelVue Corporation which would set up the proposed system. The Mount Laurel-based company has been providing similar media services to municipalities for over 25 years. According to Rolfe, the company lists more than 1,500 public entities as clients.
