City wants to acquire new cameras, monitors
The city's public access channel is hoping to upgrade equipment to improve efficiency and allow for continuation of 24-hour programming.
The Advocate reports the work will cost about $30,000.
Officials say Kenner TV needs new cameras, servers and monitors used mostly for broadcasts of city meetings and community programs.
Valerie Waguespack, the city's director of information and technology, said the city has found $22,000 in savings on a telephone system upgrade that will help pay for the TV work.
Waguespack said KTV's equipment has become unreliable. Some, she said, was damaged during Hurricane Katrina in 2005.
KTV's two employees are kept busy trying to keep it functioning, she said.
