School Board meetings now broadcast live

GOFFSTOWN - Monday's meeting of the Goffstown School Board was broadcast live for the first time in years.

Aired on GTV-16, the board's arrangement with GTV helps, at least partially, to alleviate the conflict that has existed for years with meetings of the board of selectmen, who also hold meetings on Monday nights and are also broadcast live on GTV-22.

Recently, the school board refused to consider citizen requests to move their meetings to a different night so that residents could attend both meetings.  They found such a change in their meeting schedule "too inconvenient".  The problem was compounded by the fact that residents also could not watch school board meetings live since GTV only provided taped replays on irregular schedules. 

Only recently has the school board agreed (but has yet to fully comply) to providing DVDs of the meetings within a week of those meetings to the Town library.

School board meetings are held every other Monday night at 7 p.m.  The next meeting is scheduled for Monday, Oct. 1 and will again be broadcast on GTV-16.
