Keith Hodkinson, owner of Senco Media, which incorporates Internet radio station WTSC and SenecaCountyRadio.com, spoke before the Utilities and Related Services Committee Wednesday evening about taking over the broadcasting of Tiffin City Council meetings.
"Everybody wins, we're not taking it off the air, and you will be able to watch it on the Internet," Councilman Tyler Shuff said.
Hodkinson said he wants to pick up the service, since Time Warner Cable is discontinuing the television broadcasts of Tiffin City Council meetings in June.
WTTF will continue to provide audio and two contractors will continue to provide the video for the televised meetings through Hodkinson, who said he would take on selling of advertising to businesses to support the operation.
Shuff said if Hodkinson takes over the programming, the televised broadcasts will not cease.
"It is a private entity and will not cost the city anything," Mayor Aaron Montz said.
Law Director Brent Howard said he wanted to look into the constitutionality of a single business venturing with the city.
"As part of a contract we should add that we need 60 days notice if there is a decision to discontinue service," Councilman Mark Hayes said.
Council meetings would be available next day after a meeting on podcast at SenecaCountyRadio.com as early as June.
Council took no action at this time.
