            A public hearing was then held on an ordinance authorizing the Mayor to execute a franchise agreement with Charter Communications. The proposed franchise agreement calls for a 15-year agreement in an amount equal to 5% of the annual gross revenues to be paid to the City for cable services sold in our corporate limits.   

            The Council Administrator explained that this is a non-exclusive agreement, and it does not prohibit another cable provider from selling cable services in the City of Thibodaux.  He also explained that this agreement does not regulate the amount charged for cable services in the City of Thibodaux.

            Mr. Karl Adams of Charter Communications stated that a 5% franchise fee is the highest fee allowed by law, which is what Charter is proposing to pay the City for cable services sold in the City limits. 

            Councilman Dee Richard stated that he does not see where the Council has a choice at this time.  If we don’t vote for this agreement, the residents would not have any cable services at all. 

            On motion of Councilman Dee Richard, seconded by Councilman Winston, the Council voted to adopt an ordinance authorizing the Mayor to sign a franchise agreement with Charter Communications.  Upon roll call the vote was as follows:

            A public hearing was then held on an ordinance authorizing the Mayor to execute a franchise agreement with Charter Communications. The proposed franchise agreement calls for a 15-year agreement in an amount equal to 5% of the annual gross revenues to be paid to the City for cable services sold in our corporate limits.   

            The Council Administrator explained that this is a non-exclusive agreement, and it does not prohibit another cable provider from selling cable services in the City of Thibodaux.  He also explained that this agreement does not regulate the amount charged for cable services in the City of Thibodaux.

            Mr. Karl Adams of Charter Communications stated that a 5% franchise fee is the highest fee allowed by law, which is what Charter is proposing to pay the City for cable services sold in the City limits. 

            Councilman Dee Richard stated that he does not see where the Council has a choice at this time.  If we don’t vote for this agreement, the residents would not have any cable services at all.
