County seeks input on Comcast

Henrico County has created the website http://www.co.henrico.va.us/genserv/cablefranchise to receive public input as it begins the process of renewing a franchise with Comcast to operate a cable television system in the county.

Residents can provide comments regarding Comcast’s performance and quality of service since the current franchise agreement began in May 2006. They also can discuss the community’s future cable-related needs and how Comcast could serve the community over the course of a renewed franchise agreement. The website offers a submission form and background information about the renewal process, including the current franchise agreement and Henrico’s ordinance governing cable television.

Residents also can provide comments by sending an email to .(JavaScript must be enabled to view this email address); by calling (804) 501-5153 from 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., Monday through Friday; or by writing a letter to the attention of Michelle Buresh, Henrico County Department of General Services, P.O. Box 90775, Henrico VA 23273-0775. A random sample of county residences will be mailed a survey as well. 

Henrico is planning to hold public information meetings regarding franchise renewal in the spring. Dates, times and locations will be announced later.Federal law allows Henrico to award nonexclusive cable franchises and prohibits the provision of cable service without a franchise in most circumstances. Comcast’s current seven-year franchise will expire May 14, 2013.
