As of Thursday, meetings of the Municipal Zoning and Appeals Board, the Board of Estimates and the Board of Liquor License Commissioners will be broadcast live by the city, according to a press release from the mayor’s office.
According to the release, the Mayor’s Office of Cable and Communications will broadcast the meetings “on the city cable station, TV25, and online.”
Follow the respective links for meetings schedules for the following:
TV25 reaches about “115,000 Baltimore households that subscribe to cable television,” according to the mayor’s office. Funding for TV25 is “provided through a subscriber fee that is part of Baltimore’s existing cable franchise agreement.”
It was the Board of Estimates that became the location of a “turf war,” as the Baltimore Sun put it, between city Comptroller Joan M. Pratt and Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake over a VoIP phone agreement that resulted in the purchase of $675,000 worth of equipment.-30-
