City Council Public Hearing

NOTICE TO CLAREMONT RESIDENTS

On June 17, 2017 the City received notice from COMCAST that, pursuant to Section 626 (a) (1) of the Cable Communications Policy Act of 1984, the renewal period is now open and they have requested the start of renewal proceedings.  Our current contract with COMCAST expires in January 2020. 
The beginning of the process states that within 6 months of the receipt of the letter (by December 18, 2017) the City will conduct an ascertainment proceeding which affords residents an opportunity to (a) identify the future cable-related needs and (b) review COMCAST’s performance under the current agreement.
The City is seeking input from the citizens of Claremont (both COMCAST users as well as any non-users) who wish to give input on future cable related needs for Claremont as well as how Comcast has performed, access to cable services, customer service, frequency of service breakdowns etc.  It’s an opportunity to give your input. 
The City Council will hold a public hearing on December 13, 2017 during it’s regular council meeting for the purpose of taking citizen’s input.  This public hearing is scheduled for 7:10 pm.  If you want to submit something in writing please forward it prior to the December 13th meeting to the City Manager’s office at 58 Opera House Square, Claremont NH 03743
