Granite Falls Council plans to challenge Mediacom petition


GRANITE FALLS -- Granite Falls City Council members voted unanimously on Monday to challenge a petition filed by Mediacom with the Federal Communications Commission.

The cable television franchise holder in the community is asking to be exempt from rate regulation by the city and the federal entity, according to City Manager Bill Lavin.

The company is filing its request under a regulation that allows for the exemption when franchise holders face "effective competition.''
