Today: April 23, 2014

Minnesota Severe Weather Awareness Week is April 21 – 25. Tornado Siren Tests will be conducted across the state and specifically in Barnesville on Thursday April 24 at 1:45 p.m. and 6:55 p.m. This is a great opportunity for families to discuss what to do if you hear the sirens during this upcoming summer.

New Barnesville Cable TV channels will be announced on Facebook and the City of Barnesville website next Tuesday, April 29!! City staff have been working hard on identifying new cable channels to replace MTV, VH1, Spike, Comedy Central, Nickelodeon, TV Land and CMT, which be removed from our channel lineup on April 30. This action was taken as a result of Viacom’s unfair contract negotiations.

On April 30 Barnesville Cable TV customers will no longer receive the signals of MTV, VH1, Spike, Comedy Central, Nickelodeon, TV Land and CMT. The City chose to not renew the Viacom Network contract due to their unreasonable rate increases which would have dramatically increased the cost our customers pay for Cable TV. Staff is working to put in place comparable TV channels as soon as possible. Watch for updated information on channels to be added.
