The board of directors of Pegasus Inc., Perry’s local-access cable television channel, held their 21st annual meeting Tuesday at the station’s studios at 1014 Second St. in Perry.
Elections for open board positions and officers were held, and longtime Pegasus Board members Larry Vodenik and Dan Haymond were elected to additional two-year terms.
The annual meeting was followed by the regular quarterly meeting. Dan Haymond was elected board president, Larry Vodenk vice president, Jon Jamison treasurer and Doug Wood Secretary. Also serving on the board is Terry Schnirring. Keith Knoll is the Pegasus coordinator.
Pegasus Cable Channel 12 was founded in 1994, as a 401(c) non-profit corporation. Pegasus makes video recording and editing equipment available to anyone in the Perry Community School District free of charge. The only requirement is that this equipment must be used to make a program to be shown on Pegasus.
Funding for Pegasus is provided through the cable franchise fee paid for by Media Com and a PEG fee charged to every Pegasus subscriber. The annual budget is around $40,000.
PEGASUS stands for Public Educational Governmental Access Service for Us.
One of the main duties of Pegasus is to record and broadcast the Perry City Council meetings and Perry Community School District Board of Directors meetings.
