Pembroke: Residents file petition to reverse sale of public access TV

A group of Pembroke residents liked their local cable access TV just the way it was, and are filing a petition for a Special Town Meeting warrant in the hope of getting it back.

At issue is a move by selectmen in July to sell Pembroke’s cable access facilities, worth more than $1 million, for just one dollar.

The buyer was Plymouth-based PACTV.

A petition organizer told WATD that selectmen haven’t explained why they did what they did, but she said the people behind the petition are determined to get the transaction reversed.

Pembroke Special Town Meeting is in November.
