Cable Franchise: The Renewal Process

The county is working to ensure all foreseeable needs are considered and to make certain the renewed franchise agreement is structured in a way to assure a high-quality, innovative and versatile cable system. To help with the process, the county contracted with CBG Communications, Inc., a telecommunications and cable television consulting firm. CBG is assisting in:

  • An audit of Comcast’s financial records
  • A community needs assessment
  • A technological assessment of the existing cable infrastructure and future technology that may be available
  • A review of the institutional network supporting local government
  • An evaluation of current public, educational and government access (PEG) channel operations and recommendations for future PEG needs
  • Identification of foreseeable broadband needs of the community
  • An approach to connect remote areas beyond the franchisee's obligation
  • Negotiation of a new franchise agreement
  • Development of the final franchise agreement draft
