Applications, Permits, and Documents

  • Cable Franchise Agreement

    • Cable Television Franchise Renewal
      At the December 10, 2018 meeting of the Board of Commissioners of Springfield Township, the Board authorized the proposed cable television franchise agreement with Comcast Telecommunications to be made available on the Township's website. The term of the agreement is 12 years and sets forth the conditions by which Comcast may utilize the Township's rights of way to provide cable television service to the community. The Cable Communications Act of 1984 does not permit the Township to set or regulate fees charged by cable television providers. It is the intention of the Board of Commissioners to consider authorization of the renewal agreement at their January 9, 2019 business meeting. Questions about the proposed renewal agreement may be directed to the Assistant Township Manager.
