Tartaglia agreed that the two higher-priced options were not practical, but he would support the two cheaper broadcasting options that were discussed on Sept. 10, he said. One of those options would run $14,700 for the first year; the other would cost $9,300 for the first year.
At that meeting, the trustees requested additional options from the administration. Trustees will review these three, more modestly-priced options on Monday.
Two of the three new options involve a board representative presenting the highlights of the trustees meeting in a video recording session in the college’s television studio. Using the college’s television studio will bring down the upfront costs associated with outfitting the board room for video recording, according to the board report on the project. One of these new options, which would involve a three-person film crew and three cameras, would cost $12,000 for the first year, the board report stated. The second of these new options, which would involve a one-person crew and one camera, would run $7,200 in the first year.
