CCMH Board Meetings Broadcast Live
The City of Gillette and Campbell County Memorial Hospital
are pleased to annouce that beginning Thursday, December 8th at 5:00 p.m., GPA/TV will broadcast CCMH Board of Trustee
meetings live. The meetings will be broadcast on Optimum channel 22 - which is GPA/TV's government channel.
Typically, the Board of Trustees meet on the fourth Thursday of every month; however due to the holidays, the Board combines the November and December meetings into one meeting in early December.
For the past two years, the City of Gillette's Electrical Engineering, Electrical Services and IT division have been extending fiber optic connections to government and school district facilities (elementary and secondary schools, as well as administrative facilities) to improve network and internet connections. The city and CCMH staff determined that running a fiber connection between them would be advantageous for both entities.
"Presently, GPA/TV broadcasts live City Council, City Planning, County Commissioner and County Planning meetings, and adding the CCMH Board of Trustees live is just another feather in GPA's cap. The hospital is excited about this too," stated Public Information Officer Joe Lunne. He added, "For at least a decade, GPA/TV has been broadcasting the CCMH meeting on a tape-delayed basis. From this point on, the Board of Trustee meetings will be broadcast live, with subsequent re-runs."
