Meeting History

Aug 18, 2020 7:00 PM Video City Council Regular Meeting

Chris Melville stated that this is a franchise agreement with Central Telecom (Centracom) for telecommunications. They have been operating under the old Precis agreement but we do need to have a non-exclusive franchise agreement with them for general telecommunications which includes phone service, broadband, fiber, etc. Centracom has been adhering to the related code requirements but an agreement had not yet been put in place.

Mayor Corona asked about collecting franchise fees. Chris stated that the franchise fee is 5% and Centracom has been collecting and paying those fees already. Council Member Anderson asked if the City would have to collect the franchise fee from the customers or the company. Chris stated that the company collects the fee and pays the City.

Chris asked that if the agreement is approved that it be conditional upon final review of the City Manager and City Attorney as the agreement is still being reviewed by Centracom and modifications may be needed.

Council Member Holm made a motion to accept and approve the Telecommunications Franchise Agreement for Central Telecom Services, LLC, a Utah Limited Liability Company conditional upon the final review and approval of the City Manager and City Attorney. The motion was seconded by Council Member Anderson and passed unanimously.
