Welcome to the City of Albuquerque

Statement of Purpose

The purpose of this document is to implement Board responsibilities in establishing policy on programming, grievance procedures, operational criteria and the role of GOV TV in all politically oriented programming.

The GOV TV Board of Directors was established by the Albuquerque City Council to meet a need for a Board of Directors to establish policy for all programming of GOV TV and to promote a well-educated public with a programming schedule that is both newsworthy and educational.

The purpose of this document is to implement Board responsibilities in establishing policy on programming, grievance procedures, operational criteria and the role of GOV TV in all politically oriented programming; in pursuing diversified programming of value and interest to the citizenry; in ensuring policy and recommendations consistent with the FCC rules for a cable broadcasting station and in developing annual policy recommendations for approval of the City Council and the County Commission.

To those ends, this document is intended to clarify functions and services of GOV, provide operational direction for Channel Management and Staff, define access and exclusions and establish procedures for conflict resolution, grievances and controversial issues.

In accordance with 0-56, Channel Management shall implement all policies and procedures recommended by the Board and approved by the 
Council and the Commission.
