Planning Commission Meeting Video

The station was launched in 1994 to give the public television access to Board of County Commission meetings and other important information relating to local government. Though MGA primarily airs proceedings of the County Commission, it also features programs that highlight the programs and services Manatee County Government offers its tax paying residents and visitors. The station is also a prime source for important information before, during and after emergencies.

Manatee Government Access (MGA) can be seen locally on Bright House channel 622, Verizon channel 30 and Comcast channel 20. 

DVD copies of County Commission meeting are available for a small fee by calling Manatee County Board Records at (941) 741-4018.
