“Metro Government is required to hold a public hearing before any cable franchise agreement is approved,” says Councilwoman Cheri Bryant Hamilton (D-5) who chairs the Committee. “We want the public to have an opportunity to express any thoughts or concerns they may have about Insight’s operations in the Metro area.”
The public hearing will take place in Council Chambers beginning at 3:00pm.
Persons who wish to speak will be given three minutes and may sign up in person one hour before the meeting beginning at 2:00pm on the Third Floor of the City Hall, 601 West Jefferson Street. No phone sign ups are permitted.
Written comments or other pertinent documentation may be submitted to the Transportation and Public Works Committee through the Metro Council Clerk’s Office at any time prior to the close the hearing. The Metro Council clerk’s email is Kathy.firstname.lastname@example.org.
“I look forward to hearing public input regarding the Insight franchise agreement” says Councilman Robin Engel (R-22) who is Vice-Chair of the committee. “It is important that we take the time to listen to what the community has to say, and address any concerns that are voiced.”
The Committee will review all comments and must approve the Franchise Agreement before forwarding it to the Metro Council for any final approval. The public can review the proposed agreement by going to the www.louisvilleky.gov or the Metro Council’s home page at www.louisvilleky.gov/metrocouncil
