cable television rates in New Braunfels Regulations of the rates area allowed under the 1992 Cable Act The motion to regulate the rates was approved four to 1 with District 2 Councilman Dan Bremer voting against the regulations It seems to me theres enough reg ulating out there without getting involved in something said Bre mer The motion to approve the regula tions was made by Councilman Chris Bowers and seconded by Jan Kennady According to City Attorney Barry Moore the Texas Municipal League has been making an effort to inform cities about the Cable Act He said the act allows for regula tions on the basic cable rates but not expanded rates TCI Cablevision Manager Mark Morrison told the council many cities are opting to regulate cable rates What you are doing is fairly com he said He added that forms are currently available at the cable companys office in case any customers would like to complain about rates The forms are sent to the FCC Morrison urged the city to stay out of the consultant He said some cities have hired paid consul tants to deal with the regulations although only basic cable installation and equipment falls under the citys control Currently cable companies are under a rate freeze until Nov 15 Under FCC rules the rates for basic service tier equipment and installa tion may be regulated Costs of expanded cable or any channels requested individually are not regulated Also the channels included in the basic tier cannot be regulated Regulations by the city also require that any future rate increases must be reviewed and approved by the city In order to regulate the rates the city must obtain certification from the Fed eral Communications Commission enact rules conforming to FCC regu lations and notify the cable operator that the city is certified
