The ultimate in commissioners' mis-appropriation of funds, in the county responsible for more than 70% of Colorado's tourist income:
BRECKENRIDGE Many of the FM radio stations and all over-the-air TV stations available in Summit County are in jeopardy.
An aging power line that services a Bald Mountain-based site where channels are rebroadcast is reaching the end of its life.
The price tag to replace the line is an estimated $250,000, well outside the budget of the $50,000-per-year nonprofit Summit Public Radio and TV (SPRTV) that manages the site.
It's just a fact, either the power line gets replaced before it fails, or we go out of business, SPRTV board president Suzanne Greene told the Summit County Board of County Commissioners at a recent meeting. If we go out of business, so go the radio stations and the TV stations.
