Agreement restated between cable boards
By Lisa Brody
Approval was unanimously given to a third restated agreement by the Bloomfield Township Board of Trustees at their meeting on Monday, January 10, for cable access management between Bloomfield Community Television and the Birmingham Area Cable Board.
Greg Black, Bloomfield Community Television operations manager, explained that since 2000, the two area cable boards had shared cable access management. This is the third restatement of the original agreement, effective from January 1, 2022 through December 31, 2026. There is an annual amount of $308,300.00 payable in equal quarterly payments of $77,075.00 by the Birmingham Area Cable Board to Bloomfield Community Television.
New to this agreement, he said, is coverage of the regularly scheduled Bingham Farms Village Council Meeting; Birmingham Historic District Committee and Design Review Board; Franklin Village Planning Commission; Franklin Village Historic District; Franklin Village Zoning Board of Appeals; and twelve special meetings.
Another addition to this agreement is the coverage of 25 Birmingham Public Schools sporting events per year which were previously invoiced per event.
