Tuesday's Board of Supervisors meeting in Millcreek Township will be the last one in the unforeseen future. Due to cost-cutting measurements in the Millcreek Township School District, MTSD-TV, which broadcasts the meetings, will be eliminated.
Chairman of the Board of Supervisors, Joe Kujawa, said he and the supervisors are upset about this. Kujawa said this isn't a good thing for the citizens of Millcreek that are older, or cannot get to the meetings. He said they still want those citizens to be informed and up-to-date with what's going on in the township.
But it's not just the meetings, it's the extra programming like one-on-ones with law makers that he says citizens will also miss out on.
"You'd be surprised when go to a grocery store or church, and someone says, 'I like this' or 'I like that,' or 'I don't like this' 'I don't like that.' So it's very important for us because we want to stay in tune with the people who can't get here, and let them know what we're doing and that we're trying to things right here."
Kujawa said the board is looking for someone else to work with so they can get the government channel up and running as soon as possible.
