5 Year Financial Projection: Matt Wojcik, new Town Administrator asked for a 5 year financial projection in a specified spreadsheet format. Pat presented a spreadsheet with an initial breakdown of the next five years as it relates to the Cable operational and capital budgets. Pat noted that the projection takes into account that we are focusing on mainly Government coverage with a light Public presence as needed. This will help keep the Capital needs moderate, as we don’t need expensive production equipment without a studio. Some discussion about how the wages might be affected by minimum wage changes, etc. Some discussion was had about supporting the school’s video needs but need to iron out our place within that. Tom mentioned we would need to discuss with the School first. Bob motioned to approve the 5 year budget projection as presented, Chris 2nd, unanimous favor.
