PAC 8 board of directors President Dave Schiferl made an appeal to the Los Alamos County Council on Tuesday to not only forego a proposed $7,560 cut in funding for the public access station but to increase its allotment by $1,700.
“This really hurts,” Schiferl said. “PAC 8 has a budget of about $118K total. This is for everything: capital improvements, salary, benefits, everything. And about 40 percent of that comes from the county.”
The cut in funding is tied to a reduction in services the county is contracting from PAC 8, specifically, PAC 8’s cable broadcast and streaming of council and boards and commission meetings.
PAC 8 has been televising those meetings for more than 20 years and streaming for several.
“So PAC 8 did it all, did it well,” Schiferl said. “I am unaware of any complaints…We’ve tried to do cutting edge public access television here in Los Alamos. And I think we’ve succeeded in that.”
