Manassas Park City staff want to know what residents think about Comcast Cable TV before they make a decision about renewing the franchise agreement the city has with the cable giant.
The agreement between Comcast and the city expires in March of 2014, but before talks begin, staff need to determine the community's interests and needs, as well as how the company is performing, Manassas Park officials said.
In short, Comcast is allowed to put cable and other facilities in the city street rights-of-way in exchange for the company meeting customer expectations and technology standards, city officials said.
Only Manassas Park residents are allowed to send comments, along with their name, address and phone number to the city manager's office via the vertical, orange contact button on the right of the city's website. The information can also be mailed to the city manager's office at 1 Park Center Court, Manassas Park, VA. 20111.
