Minutes of October 1, 2014, meeting approved.


George Alexander reported on the complaint he had filed with Frontier Communications which is the successor cable provider to ATT U-verse. Alexander reported poor service from Frontier including more than one appointment for installation at his home which was missed by the Frontier service technician.


CTAC Vice-Chair Quinn reported that she had reached out to all three school member municipality school districts to make sure they were up to speed on the CTAC Excellence in Public Service Video Contest rules. Quinn has not received any response to her outreach. She indicated that she is concerned that the CTAC Video Excellence contest will receive a small number of entries.


Don Levy reported that he had made reservations for Thursday, December 11, at 6 pm for the annual CTAC dinner meeting at Ristorante Luce restaurant in Hamden. He reported that Jenn Sacco had indicated she would attend the meeting. Chairperson Weinstein asked Levy to send a reminder to all members regarding the location and date for the December meeting two weeks prior to the actual date. Levy said he would send a reminder email notification as requested.


Members were shown the graphics produced by J. Ruta for the new logo for CTAC. Ruta received praise for his work. The sense of the members is that a good start has been made. Ruta was asked to produce one graphic in black and white and in a format which would be appropriate for new CTAC letterhead.  Ruta said that he would do so.


Levy again reminded members that there were eight open seats on CTAC. He asked members to use personal contacts to find people to volunteer to fill these openings.



Meeting was adjourned at 7:00.
