Museums board donates electricity to Wyoming PBS
Apr 16, 2014 - By Kelli Ameling, Staff Writer
The Fremont County Museums Board of Trustees has agreed to let Wyoming PBS use electricity at the Dubois Museum.
During the board's meeting March 13, the board heard a presentation from John Angst of Wyoming PBS regarding the use of power at the museum.
Angst said he wanted permission to have extended power to the workstation truck from the museum's main panel to film a production for PBS.
"They needed the extra service for their video-sound-light-recording project to take place in the Dennison building," chairman Jon Lane said.
During the meeting, Angst said PBS would "bear the cost of the 58 kilowatt hours."
However, trustee Tom Duncan made a motion to allow the extension at no cost to Wyoming PBS and use money out of the general fund to cover the expense.
"That's a good idea," trustee Carol Chidsey said.
Duncan said the publicity value would be worth "much more" than the cost.
The board unanimously approved the motion.
Angst said the museums board and museum will be added to the credits and a donation would be considered.
"That is up to you," Duncan said.
