Henrico seeks public comment on cable television franchise renewal
The Henrico County Cable Television Advisory Committee will hold public hearings March 20 and March 22 as part of a process to renew the county’s cable television franchise with Comcast. The first hearing is scheduled for 6 p.m. Tuesday, March 20 in the board room at the Henrico Government Center, 4301 E. Parham Rd. The second hearing will be held at 6 p.m. Thursday, March 22 in the multipurpose room of the Eastern Government Center, 3820 Nine Mile Rd.
Residents will be able to provide feedback on Comcast’s performance and customer service and share thoughts on the community’s future cable needs and interests. Representatives from the Department of General Services and County Attorney’s Office will be present to explain and answer questions about the renewal process.
Henrico’s franchise agreement with Comcast of Massachusetts/Virginia, Inc. took effect May 14, 2006 and will expire May 14, 2013. County officials will negotiate a proposed agreement after reviewing the comments received through the public hearings, the county’s website and a random survey of residents. Any new franchise agreement would be guided by federal and state laws and county ordinances and would be subject to approval by the Henrico Board of Supervisors after an advertised public hearing.
