Telecom Board chairman asks Fayetteville City Council to allow forum on future of FHS and a forum on the future of the Walton Arts Center

To the members of the Fayetteville City Council, Mayor Dan Coody.

In May of 2008, following the termination of Cable Administrator Marvin Hilton, two issue forums that had already been given the green light for production on the Fayetteville Government Channel were unceremoniously yanked from the planning stages.

One issue forum dealt with the future of Fayetteville High School, and the other was to deal with the future of the Walton Arts Center in Fayetteville.

Given that at the time these programs were removed from the planning stages, both of them were fully permissible under the long-standing policies Fayetteville Government Channel had been operating under, at our June meeting the Fayetteville Telecommunications Board voted unanimously to urge the City Council to allow these two forums to take place.
