Showcase - Lake Minnetonka Communications Commission

Mound is part of a larger community of cities that support it's own Cable cooperative called the Lake Minnetonka Communications Commission (LMCC). With a tremendous amount of help from volunteers, they manage to staff all the area's city council, school board, and other important government meetings. They provide free classes so that anyone can learn to use their equipment, and then anyone can produce a show. It's a tremendous community resource that too often gets taken for granted.

There is a couple of paid staff at their building in Spring Park. They made this video over the summer, was nominated for and Emmy, and has been awarded Alliance for Community Media's Hometown Award in the Children's Programming category.

Great work LMCC!
