The City of Springfield and Comcast are still haggling over details of a long-term cable TV franchise agreement.
A ten-year deal expired in early 2013, and since then the contract has been extended for a few months at a time. A newly-introduced ordinance seeks another six-month extension… through December of this year.
Mayor Mike Houston won’t comment on what issues are still unresolved, but says they are mostly small details that take time to iron out. A Comcast spokesman did not return a call seeking comment.
