The FCC has issued a Second Further Notice of Proposed Rulemaking, which would significantly reduce cable franchise fee revenue for local governments and impact other cable franchise obligations, in particular PEG channels.
In Lake Orion, cable franchise fees support:
-live, unedited, gavel to gavel coverage of government meetings, including
Lake Orion Village Council and Orion Township Board,
-youth media literacy camps,
-broadcast internships for high school and college students,
-technology grants to Lake Orion Community Schools ($250,000 in 2017-2018),
-support & promotion of local non-profits and local businesses,
-Orion residents’ access to technology to create, communicate, and connect
with other residents through video on the Orion public access channel.
