Meeting called to order 6:05 p.m.

Comcast representative not present, but submitted written report of proposed price increase.  Jen mentioned an article in the Atlantic magazine recently about channel bundling which she said she would send around. 

Minutes from December 2012 meeting were reviewed and amendments suggested regarding notifications already having been sent to former members about de facto resignation from the council by non-attendance.  Discussion of appropriate titles to use for organizations, individuals, and representatives ensued, and amendments will be made to reflect that.

Don moved and Tad seconded that we accept the minutes from the December meeting with the discussed changes.

George moved and Johnes seconded that the mayors be sent letters by Jen indicating the openings on the council due to these withdrawals and reminders of other openings in existence. 

CTV report: CTV is attempting to get an HD-compatible switcher, so that the broadcast picture can be improved. 

We received communication from PURA that CTV can file reports yearly instead of monthly in docket 10-10-08 (docket is not closed).
