    It has come to my attention that in order for Walpole residents to receive public access channels 8 and 10, which show FACT-TV via Comcast, it must be approved by the Walpole Select Board. My question is, why doesn’t the Select Board give this approval?

      Has it ever Ben requested? I don’t recall it ever having come to a vote.
