No one could find the right keys or door code to get into the locked Buncombe County Television offices, so Thursday’s meeting of the URTV Board of Directors was postponed. Board President Jerry Young told gathered onlookers and board members that it will be rescheduled soon.
“I forgot those skills of picking locks a long time ago,” Young said with a laugh. “So we’re going to have to reschedule and we’ll just send an e-mail out when we can convene again. Unfortunately, we’re locked out. I know that’s disappointing to all of us. I was looking forward to this meeting tonight. It’s unfortunate, but we’ll reconvene.”
He told Xpress that he anticipated an announcement of the new meeting date “within the next couple of days.”
The meeting was to include a vote on sweeping changes to the public-access channel’s bylaws that would eliminate the current membership structure and put more power in the hands of the board.
