GREEN BAY, Wis. (WBAY) - Members of the Green Bay City Council have decided to hold off on voting over whether or not to get rid of their public access television channel.

The decision comes after the city’s IT Department recommended getting rid of the channel, which has been down for the past few months.

Alders say the meetings haven’t been able to run on the channel for the last two months.

In order to continue, they would need to upgrade equipment, and also hire more personnel.

Some people argued a live stream over the internet is the best way to move forward, adding that they haven’t had any complaints about the channel being down.

Others say they don’t have enough information about how many people still rely on the cable station.
