Meetings & Makeup
The Cable TV Commission was created by ordinance in February 2012 when the City Council dissolved the Cable Regulatory Commission and the Cable Tele-Programming Commission. The new commission consists of seven members and is scheduled to meet monthly (the first Wednesday of each month at 4 p.m.) or as needed, but not less than once per quarter of the calendar year.
The Commission will meet in City Hall Annex at 1300 Main Street unless a different location is specified on the individual meeting agenda.
The Cable TV Commission advises the City Council on matters pertaining to cable regulation in Dubuque and the use of the local access channels and facilities by
developing policies for the use of equipment, access channel scheduling, the daily regulation of the cable franchise, the resolution of subscriber complaints, and other matters pertaining to community programming;
encouraging interest in and development of decidedly local programming;
making recommendations for the expenditure of funds for access equipment;
monitoring the operation of the cable system; and
providing an opportunity for local cable subscribers to voice a complaint about their cable service.
