Goals


The primary goal of Orange Government Access Television (OGAT) is to make local government more accessible and understandable to the residents of Orange. Through the production and distribution of programming which covers a broad range of government information, this service strives to assist local viewers to understand how local government operates, what town services are available, how to better utilize town services and how the activities of town government affect the community.

The secondary goal is to provide a vehicle for town government access to the cable television system (or other electronic media) for such vital uses as training, data transmission and new opportunities for public communications.

OGAT programs are broadcast on Cablevision of Southern Connecticut channel 79.
