The Committee:
  • administers local origination programming resources
  • interfaces with the Massachusetts Cable Television Commission
  • monitors compliance with license and applicable laws
  • serves as liaison between Groton consumers and the local service provider
  • acting for the Selectmen, runs the formal selection process for a licensee, initial as well as renewal each 15 years, and writes all applicable documents (license(s), etc.)
The Committee was formed around 1985 to assist in the licensing process; its work thereafter was managing of local resources and changes in regulation.
