A council committee unanimously approved Insight’s franchise agreement last week. The full council, however, sent the agreement back to the committee Thursday due to some questions about the company’s operations.
Just four members of the public addressed the committee on Insight’s agreement and three of the speakers work for the cable provider. But the council members provided harsher comments as they questioned the company’s rates and programming options.
On Wednesday, the Metro Council’s Transportation and Public Works Committee will hold a public hearing on Insight’s franchise agreement. The document regulates everything from content options to how Insight lays cable.
