Project overview

Under state and federal law, the City is authorized to grant a franchise for the construction, operation, and maintenance of cable television systems within the boundaries of the City. 

In June 2016, the City granted Comcast a franchise for its cable television system located within the City. The 2016 franchise agreement is set to expire in June 2021. The City has begun negotiations with Comcast to renew the franchise for a new term.
