Santa cruz county supervisors have given a 7-week extension to the non-profit operator of santa cruz community television, (known as C-T-V). C-T-V is facing significant funding shortages, and supervisors want C-T-V’s 300-voting members to restructure the operation. However, following an unsuccessful vote by members to do so, santa cruz county supervisor john Leopold sought to move forward with exploring other options, including merging with another entity to provide limited community programs. Leopold agreed to the extension yesterday, in part, so that C-T-V can find a new executive director. If no change is made, supervisors could start looking at other options as soon as august 14th.
