Fans of the city council meeting re-plays will need to turn to a new channel, Assistant to the City Manager Gary Flod on Thursday wrote.

“Charter Communications has moved the City’s Government Cable TV Channel from 55 to Channel 3,” Flod stated in the January 14, 2010 Weekly City Manager’s Report

The new line-up was effective January 12.

According to Flod, the change “should make viewing the City’s channel easier than ever.”

The most recent meeting is broadcast at 7:30 a.m., 12 p.m., and 7:30 p.m. every day.

Alternatively, Temple City residents can watch current and past city council meetings online. The web address is http://kgem.tv/category/temple-city-tv.

Viewers also can watch city council meetings live on the first and third Tuesdays of each month.

Since last June, Community Media of the Foothills has worked with city employees to film and broadcast city council meetings. The non-profit was hired after a new City Council voted to fund televised meetings in order to bring transparency to city government.

The CMF has been paid $600 per meeting, according to the agreement signed between the non-profit organization and the City.

Based in Monrovia, Community Media of the Foothills has had much experience with recording city council meetings. They have worked with the cities of Monrovia, San Marino, and Sierra Madre and currently have contracts with three cities, including Temple City.
