Following on from public focus groups and an online survey, the next step in the cable franchise renewal process with Comcast is for a public hearing on September 13 at 7:30pm in the County Board room.
The cable franchise renewal process examines the past performance of Comcast -- as well as future services that citizens, schools, community groups, businesses and local government would like to include in a new cable franchise agreement.
Come learn about what information was gathered during focus groups and surveys, and share your own comments.
Once every 10-15 years, local governments have the opportunity to examine past services provided by cable/video service providers and renegotiate franchise agreements. Given the enormous changes in technology and media over the past 15 years, the process of granting a new franchise to Comcast deserves serious consideration and public input.
