It will be a big week ahead for Wilmington and WCTV.
Wednesday night, there are two meetings that we hope to televise live. The first is the regular School Committee meeting, which will take place at 6:30PM (note earlier time!) and air on its usual channel of WCTV-G (Comcast 22 / Verizon 38).
Happening at 7PM will be the Board of Appeals meeting where we should get a final decision on whether the Fourth of July festivities can move back to the Common area. As many of you know, the main sticking point at last month’s meeting dealt with the potential for property damage in the area. We hope to have this meeting broadcast live as well, from Town Hall, on WCTV-P (Comcast 9 / Verizon 37).
Both meetings will also stream live on our website, WCTV.org.
Wednesday also happens to be the deadline to register to vote for the March 1st Presidential Primary. We put together a little PSA with Town Clerk Sharon George to answer top questions before that deadline:

He sat down with host Lisa Kapala to talk about all the animals he sees and why he loves doing the project.
