After many months of extending an old agreement between the city and the cable provider, Buffalo appears to finally be on the verge of having an updated franchise agreement with Optimum Cable.
Negotiations have been going on for a couple of years, with the city operating under the existing franchise agreement, but wanting to renegotiate a new agreement.
At their last meeting,Kirven provided the council a proposed franchise agreement from Optimum for them to look over for discussion and possible approval in January.
Kirven also reported that the air conditioner cleanup effort that was scheduled for December 21st was cancelled, and he explained why.
The air conditioning units are on city property located behind the Econolodge near the recycling center.
