Montgomery County has rescheduled three of the previously scheduled focus group meetings seeking community input to help determine what kinds of cable services the public is interested in receiving as part of a new cable television franchise agreement with Comcast.
The company’s current 15-year franchise agreement with the County expires on July 1, 2013, and the County will begin negotiations with Comcast this summer for a new franchise agreement which will address past performance, customer service and new technologies.
The three rescheduled focus groups will take place as follows:
• Youth Focus Group – Tuesday, April 17, 3:30 – 5:30 p.m. at the Silver Spring Civic Center, One Veterans Place;
• Consumers Focus Group – Tuesday, April 17, 7 – 9 p.m. at the Silver Spring Civic Center, One Veterans Place; and
• Spanish-Speaking Community Focus Group – Thursday, April 19, 6 – 8 p.m. at the Gilchrist Center for Cultural Diversity, 2424 Reedie Drive, First Floor, Wheaton.
There is no fee to attend and light refreshments will be served.
