City Hosts Cable Television Open House

The City of Falls Church government is hosting an open house on Monday, June 1, from 6:15 – 7 p.m. in the Council Chamberson the second floor of 300 Park Avenue to give local residents and businesses a chance to speak with representatives from Cox Communications, RCN and Verizon/FIOS. Also, the City is interested in getting feedback from Cox Communications and RCN customers, as the franchise agreement with those two companies are underway or set to begin.

Franchise agreements are how the City gets compensated by the cable television companies for their use of public property. The Verizon franchise agree is due for renewal in a few years, but the City will accept feedback about that company as well. Those who can not attend the open house, but would like to submit feedback to the City can e-mail
