The City/County Telecommunications Commission will conduct its biennial public review of Comcast Cable’s performance at 3:30 p.m. Wednesday, April 12 in Vancouver City Council Chambers, 415 W. 6th St. The session will also be televised live on Clark/Vancouver Television (CVTV) Cable Channel 23/323 HD.

“Cable television subscribers are encouraged to give us their feedback about how they think Comcast is doing by either calling in live during the hearing or by sending their comments to us in writing,” said City/County Telecommunications Commission Vice Chair Paul Dicker.

Call-in comments and questions will be accepted during the April 12 hearing between approximately 3:50 and 4:30 p.m. The phone number will be available on-screen during CVTV’s live broadcast.

Citizens interested in submitting written testimony are asked to mail their comments to City/County Cable Television Office, P. O. Box 1995, Vancouver, WA 98668, or email them to tracie.looney@cityofvancouver.us. Written comments will be accepted through May 12

Comcast is operating under a 10-year franchise, granted in July 2013, to provide cable television services in Vancouver and Clark County, Washington. Under the terms of the franchise agreement, the Commission conducts regular reviews of the cable operator’s performance.

The eight-member Telecommunications Commission is a volunteer citizen board that advises the Vancouver City Council and the Clark County Board of Councilors on all matters related to the cable television franchise agreement with Comcast.
