Public hearing on 10-year cable franchise

Today's Ithaca Journal legal notices section contains part of the agenda for Thursday's Town Board meeting:

PLEASE TAKE NOTICE that the Town Board of the Town of Dryden, Tompkins County, New York, has scheduled a public hearing for the 12th day of February, 2004, at 7:30 P.M. at the Dryden Town Hall, 65 East Main Street, Dryden, New York, to consider renewal of the cable television franchise held by Time Warner Entertainment-Advance/Newhouse Partnership (hereinafter referred to as "Time Warner Cable"). The purpose of the hearing is to consider a Franchise Renewal Agreement which would renew Time Warner Cable's cable television franchise for an additional ten (10) years, and bring the franchise into conformity with certain provisions of the Federal Cable Communications Policy Act of 1984, as amended.
The Agreement, if approved by the Town Board, shall not take effect without the prior approval of the New York State Public Service Commission. A copy of the Franchise Renewal Agreement is available for public inspection at the office of the Town Clerk during normal business hours. Interested persons may file comments or objections with the New York State Public Service Commission, Three Empire State Plaza, Albany, New York, 12223.

There's still no agenda posted on the town site, however.
