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.

Links to past commission meetings are listed above.  If you're having trouble finding a particular agenda item or if you'd like to know where in the video the item can be found, send us an e-mail at We'll respond in a timely manner with the time at which the Board took up that discussion.

MGA can be seen at and locally on Bright House channel 644, Frontier channel 30 and Comcast channel 20.
