APPOINTMENTS AND PRESENTATIONS <br />2.1 Discussion with Sun Country Cable Staff on Loss of Channel 7 and <br />Current Federal Cable TV Laws. <br />Lyn Simpson, Sun Country Cable, addressed the Council concerning the recent cable <br />television legislation and specifically the issue of Channel 7 choosing not to be <br />available to the residents of the Town. Ms. Simpson reported that agreements had <br />been reached with the other stations but Channel 7 chose not to participate. She <br />noted that part of the agreement with the other stations who chose either to pay for <br />equipment or waive the second channel option included the section that if a <br />different agreement was reached with Channel 7 they would all receive the same <br />conditions. Ms. Simpson noted that this could be very costly to the residents ($1 - $2 <br />per customer) and she did not feel comfortable passing this increase along. In <br />addition, Ms. Simpson addressed such issues as reasonable rates for cable television, <br />benchmark rates which included number of subscribers and number of channels, <br />%W October 20, 1993 <br />Regular City Council Meeting <br />
