All Invited - Special Meeting -- The Future Of Cable TV In Missoula - 2/6

January 9, 2018View for printing

Community Leaders and Stakeholders Meeting, Tues. Feb. 6 - Please Attend!

MCAT and the City of Missoula have the opportunity to plan for the future communications needs of our community through the upcoming Charter cable franchise renewal process and we need your assistance!

In 2018, Charter Communications (now Spectrum) and the City of Missoula will enter into negotiations to renew the existing 15-year franchise agreement authorizing Charter to operate cable services in Missoula.

MCAT is organizing a special meeting ... oseq=&c=&ch= to give community leaders and key stakeholders a "heads-up" about the importance of public input into a Community Needs Assessment.

We strongly urge you or your representative of your organization to participate:

WHEN: Tuesday, February 6, 3:00 - 4:30 pm.

WHERE: Missoula Public Library -- large meeting room. 301 E. Main St.

Given the enormous changes in technology and media over the past 15 years, the process of granting a new franchise to Charter deserves serious consideration and opportunity for public input. The cable franchise renewal process examines the past performance of the cable provider - as well as future services that citizens, schools, community groups, businesses and local government would like to include in a new cable franchise agreement.

This special meeting will be led by Sue Buske from The Buske Group, a highly experienced communications consultant who is working with MCAT and the City on the franchise renewal process. At the meeting, we will explain the ways you can be involved as the needs assessment moves forward. This will greatly assist MCAT and the City of Missoula in planning for the future cable and communications needs of our community during the upcoming Spectrum (Charter) cable franchise renewal process. Snacks will be provided.

This is an important opportunity for public involvement. We hope you can participate. *Click here to RSVP ... oseq=&c=&ch=

Please contact me if you have any questions.

Yours, Joel.

Joel Baird, General Manager
