City to give PBS station $920

Marion City Council voted last week to give $920 to PBS station KPTS in return for Marion’s being featured on two programs and in 36 half-minute commercials.

“We’ll have our grant funds back in advertising,” city administrator Roger Holter told council members.

Holter said the five- to seven-minute programs would help get Marion’s story out to a wider audience.

The station already has visited the Historic Elgin Hotel and a producer has come back for another visit, Holter said. The annual Art in the Park event might be a future segment.
