Chino Valley Access Television

Video Bulletin Board

The primary goal of  Chino Valley Access Television (CVAT) is to make local government more accessible and understandable to the residents of Chino Valley.  Through the production and distribution of programming which covers a 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.

CVAT is available on Channel 57 through Cable One.

Chino Valley Access Television is responsible for taping and airing the regular Council meetings, special Council meetings, Council study sessions, and Planning & Zoning Commission meetings.

Other productions include tapes of interest to the public such as forums, public service announcements and any other program deemed appropriate by the Town Manager. Taped Council and P&Z meetings can be viewed on this web site by going to Government then to Agendas & Minutes.  DVDs of meetings may be checked out at the library using your library card.
