City to Enter Lawsuit Seeking Unpaid Cable Franchise Fees

On July 2nd the Memphis City Council authorized city attorney David Peppard to proceed with legal action to allow the city to claim an estimated $5,000-$6,000 in unpaid franchise fees from former cable television provider Longview Communications.

Peppard noted he is preparing similar litigation on behalf of several of his other municipal clients including Queen City and possibly Lancaster.

Cable franchise fees are normally paid bi-annually by the provider. With an impending sale, Longview Communications was given an adjusted pay period of seven months that coincided with the sale of the local system to Superior Cable, the current provider.

However that pay period came and went without notification from the company or receipt of payment. Attempts by the city and its attorney to collect the debt have been unsuccessful, leading to the pursuit of the lawsuit.
