Executive Council met today, Tuesday 9 June 2015.
There was one item for discussion on the Closed Agenda, which was a request from Saint FM Community Radio for financial assistance.
At an earlier Economic Development Committee meeting it had been agreed that the current policy on Island media should be reviewed and it was recognised that this would take some time. In the interim, and at the request of Saint FM Community Radio, ExCo was today pleased to grant one-off emergency financial assistance of £15,000 to Saint FM Community Radio in order to ensure its continuance prior to conclusion of the Island media review.
ExCo recognises the listenership of Saint FM Community Radio and its importance as part of the choice in media on St Helena.
The meeting concluded at 10.30am.
