John McDonald reported that a constituent has been working on this and has found a website run by the government dealing with the conversion to digital.  The website states that neither the transmitters on Mt. Potosi, nor the Town are required to go digital by February 2009.  Mr. McDonald suggested that it be determined what the plans are of who ever operates the towers on Mt. Potosi whether they intend to convert to digital or not.  If they do not convert it will affect what will be down with the Town as we use their signal.  

The website referred to is www.dtv2009.gov for information.  Radio Shack has information and can be contacted by calling 1-877-773-8848 with regard to converter boxes.

Laurayne Murray explained that in conjunction with the Chamber Chili Cook Off an opportunity arose to have an organization to do a Civil War re-enactment demonstration.  They will also be doing a demonstration at the schools.  An application came to the Tourism Advisory Board for a grant and was approved for advertising funds for the re-enactment.  It was recommended by the Tourism Advisory Board that the Town Board approve this grant request.

John McDonald clarified that the amount requested is $500.  Mrs. Murray confirmed.
