Cable franchise fees can be a substantial source of revenue for a community, but do you know what will happen when your existing cable franchise agreement ends? Those revenues could be at risk if a municipality fails to recognize and properly respond when a new Uniform Franchise Agreement shows up without notice at the local clerk's office.
