AB18874 2. Consideration of a proposed Comcast Cable Television Franchise

AN ORDINANCE RENEWING THE GRANT OF A FRANCHISE TO COMCAST OF WASHINGTON IV, INC. TO OPERATE AND MAINTAIN A CABLE SYSTEM IN THE CITY OF BELLINGHAM; SETTING FORTH CONDITIONS ACCOMPANYING THE GRANT OF FRANCHISE; PROVIDING THE CITY REGULATION AND ADMINISTRATION OF THE CABLE SYSTEM AND TERMINATING ORDINANCE NO. 10709.”

Marty Mulholland, ITSD Director presented the proposed Comcast Cable Franchise. She reviewed the background and explained definitions.

(Note: PEG = Public Access, Education Access and Government Access.)

The key provisions of the proposed franchise are:

Term of Agreement - 10 years
Franchise effective date – 15 days following City Council approval, assuming agreement is signed by both City and Comcast officials
Comcast has 60 days to accept franchise and comply with all conditions for acceptance
Franchise Fee Rate – 5%
Operating support for BTV10 – during term of the franchise, the City shall place 1.25% of Franchise fees received, in a fund to support BTV10
PEG Fees – upon effective date Comcast shall collect a per-subscriber fee of $.50/month
Discount program continues

Ms. Mulholland reviewed the financial impacts for subscribers and anticipated revenues.

Additionally, she summarized other provisions, which include:
        • 3 PEG Channels: BTV10 plus two additional PEG type channels
        • PEG channels are not obligated to be joint between City and County franchise areas
        • If any PEG channel is related, Comcast will provide $9,000 worth of in-kind advertising to notify customers of the change
        • BTV10 could transition to High Definition in the future
        • Technical support for PEG – 24 hour assistance to be provided by Comcast
        • Annexation requirements clarified
        • Ascertainment surveys
        • Complimentary services to schools and municipal buildings continues, with clearer language related to new services or relocated services for schools – voluntary initiative
        • Local (customer service) office continues
        • Customer service standards and language reorganized, easier to find, include key FCC provisions
        • Enforcement procedures clarified
        • Line extensions – policy related to adding cable services
        • Uniform service continues (Comcast provides equal and uniform service throughout Bellingham.)

Council President Snapp opened the public hearing.

Johnny Grames shared concerns about the current relationship of BTV10 with Comcast and said there is no “P” [Public access] and no “E” {Education Access}. He really hopes that the channels can be opened up to include public and education access.

Suzanne Blais, Executive Producer, Black Dog Productions and Acting Executive Director for The Center for New Media. She is a huge supporter of the idea of access television, which includes Public, Education and Government - together.

A summary of her remarks, questions and suggestions:
      • Codifying funding within the franchise agreement takes away the opportunity to look at other options.
      • There are 1,800 access stations in the United States. The model that is present in most of those stations is a single, nonprofit service provider, providing access to all public, education and government services. In that scenario there is not a duplication of administrative and infrastructure costs, which would happen with separate providers.
      • All channels should have the option of High Definition.
      • Public and Education access will need a fiber return line. If there are separate locations it could be limiting and could cost up to $100,000 to place a fiber return line. That takes away operational budget for almost an entire year. The franchise agreement notes that those costs are to be incurred by the city but then also within the body of the franchise it says that even though the city is paying for these fiber return lines, Comcast will still own them. Please clarify.
      • Feels that the language should be stricken from the agreement in regard to specific funding of BTV. Let’s call it a healthy PEG and let’s mean it.
      • Additional franchise fee money should be placed in a dedicated account for access and not go into the General Fund.
      • Asked the council to consider the establishment of Public, Educational access channels as a priority which would mean that, upon approval of the franchise, collection should occur immediately of the additional funds.
      • Immediately begin the search for a nonprofit provider for at least the P & E channels. This would not need to be a protracted process as there are lots of models out there.
      • Upon approval of the franchise, immediately trigger at least one of the channels. With the 90 day waiting period written into the franchise agreement the waiting periods could add up.
Ms. Blais concluded that she has been working toward this for eleven years and no one wants an agreement more than she, however, the access has to be viable and sustainable.

Talisa Cook said she is willing to pay for the benefits of having Public Access channels. Having Public Access could provide educational opportunities in television production for all of the schools in the area and would also be an opportunity for any community member to learn. She feels that all three channels should be broadcast in High Definition and hopes the city will make this a priority, along with starting to look for a nonprofit or group to take up the channels.

Heather Cook also spoke in favor of having Public Access channels that would highlight local talent, allow local sports to be broadcast and highlight nonprofits in town. She feels that the channels should be in High Definition and agrees that the funds that are allocated from the franchise should be put in a special fund and not in the General Fund.

Robert Clark has been involved with Public Access television since 1988. He shared a number of concerns with regard to the agreement:
      Having BTV written into the franchise as being the only High Definition channel is a major concern. The cable system in Bellingham will be upgraded to digital sometime in the life of this franchise; at that point, any analog signal will be of no use.
      Regarding the BTV budget being written into the franchise: he said, it’s the first time he has seen specific language saying that some part of the franchise fee would go towards a specific leg. Normally it’s up to the city council to decide as either a council decision or in conjunction with a nonprofit that’s operating one or all three parts of the leg.
      The franchise fee is not a tax; it is a rent. The City owns the right-of-way and should get a fair rate of return on that investment. If that gets passed along to the consumer, while unfortunate, it is a cost of doing business.
      He said, based on information found on the web site and until now, the original basic cable amount has increased 14%. The city doesn’t see any of that and it’s already being passed on to the citizens including the low income citizens. It’s interesting, he said, that the increase is only on that lowest tier and not the middle or higher tier customers.
      A cable return line is critical to any future public or educational channel.
      In the new franchise there is no granting of upfront fees for equipment for any sort of new Public or Educational startup. Without that, it could be years before there’s enough money to allow for anything of substance to be done. He suggested, that the grant be reinstated or at the very least, Comcast be asked to provide the fiber optic head end signal cable as well as the equipment, as they have done in many other jurisdictions.
      Whatever funds are brought in should go to a special Public and/or Education Fund, just like it’s written in the franchise for BTV, and should not be part of the General Fund.
There being no further comments, the public hearing was closed

KNUTSON / WEISS moved to direct staff to schedule a worksession at the first available date/time for the Committee of the Whole.

Marty Mulholland responded to various points as follows:

Fiber Return Lines: agrees that the document is not completely clear – the city has a fairly rich fiber optic infrastructure and so the intent was that Comcast would propose the costs needed simply to provide interconnects. We believe we can hold those costs down to a minimum because of the city’s solid fiber optic infrastructure. Provisions of those fiber return lines will go through the city court building, which is where the city interconnects to the Comcast cable system.

High Definition: this is a negotiating point and is a policy direction item that should be considered and discussed. Comcast only agreed to one express channel. Ms. Mulholland noted that Comcast is also looking at a joint E Channel interest with University of Washington (UW) TV and Western Washington University (WWU). UW TV also has a franchise agreement so the HD for an education channel might have another pathway.

The dedicated funding aspect of naming BTV10 in the franchise is a policy direction item.

MOTION CARRIED 7-0.


AB19332 3. Consideration of an update to the Sehome Neighborhood Plan

AN ORDINANCE OF THE CITY OF BELLINGHAM RELATING TO BELLINGHAM’S COMPREHENSIVE PLAN, UPDATING THE SEHOME NEIGHBORHOOD PLAN WITH CORRESPONDING TEXT AMENDMENTS TO BELLINGHAM MUNICIPAL CODE 20.00.160 SEHOME TABLE OF ZONING REGULATIONS AND A REZONE TO CORRECT A ZONING BOUNDARY BETWEEN AREA 9 AND 12.”

Katie Franks, Development Specialist presented the update. She provided background and the public process to date. The proposal includes:
    Outdated information eliminated, new added
    Neighborhood goals, policies and proposal identified
    New formatting
    Zoning regulation text clean up
    Dialog Initiated with Peach Health/St. Joseph’s Hospital and Western Washington University

It does not include a down zone of the northern portion of Area 7 or a Residential Parking Zone for the west side. She noted that the neighborhood association will continue discussions with Peace Health and Western Washington University and anticipate that amendments may be needed over time.

Charles Dyer, President, Sehome Neighborhood Association reviewed the history of this effort by the neighborhood that started with a grant from the City in 2005 to do a survey. As a result of the survey, the neighborhood was able to identify needs and concerns. Committees were identified to work on proposed language for the various areas. Additionally, the neighborhood made a formal request that the Samish Way Urban Village be moved from a Type IV to a Type II process so the city could put some funds into working with it.

He confirmed that they have held meetings with Western Washington University regarding the Armory and Peach Health regarding the South Campus. Both organizations have been very cooperative and Mr. Dyer said, “what we wanted and what they wanted were not in conflict.”

On behalf of the neighborhood association, he asked that the plan be approved.

Council President Snapp opened the public hearing.

Harriet Spanel spoke in favor of the proposal and asked for council’s approval.

Don Keenan emphasized the success of their process within the neighborhood and with the city staff. Additionally the Planning Commission was very helpful in determining this product.

There being no further comments, the public hearing was closed

BORNEMANN / LILLIQUIST moved approval for first and second reading. MOTION CARRIED 7-0.

Presentation made during committee. Information only.


AB19334 2. Meador/Kansas/Ellis project update

Presentation made during committee. The opening of the trail will be September 29, 2011. Information only.


AB19335 3. Post Point improvements update - final project scope

Council Member Buchanan reported that there was a mixed recommendation from committee. Addition of the ASB4 to the project scope and building the full design phase to provide 20+ years of capacity would add $5.39 million for a total project cost of $53.3 million.

BUCHANAN / KNUTSON moved to direct staff to include the construction of the Full Design Scope as part of the current project.

Council Member Lilliquist recognizes the operation efficiencies and cost savings of this proposal but does not feel that adding $5 million is the right thing to do at this time. This council voted for the middle sized plan recently and he feels it was done in part, because the price tag came back so large and he is not comfortable going ahead with this.

Council Member Weiss will oppose the motion. He does acknowledged that an advantage to moving ahead would be the economic stimulus for infrastructure improvements it would provide but is skeptical that it will go to local contractors. He would rather the added $5 million go into additional I&I (Inflow & Infiltration) improvements, which most likely would provide more local employment opportunities. He feels that the population projections, the reality of housing starts and projected housing starts are such that the city does not need this particular upgrade.

Council Member Bornemann feels that staff’s proposal makes sense. He understands that growth isn’t happening at the rate that was projected in the past but growth is going to happen in Bellingham.

Council Member Knutson said we can pay now or pay later. Construction costs will go up and with the money saved from the bond sale, he feels this is the right time to move ahead with this proposal.

Council Member Buchanan concurred with Council Member Bornemann and Council Member Knutson. He asked the Public Works Director if there may be regulatory requirements coming from the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers.

Ted Carlson, Public Works Director replied that their is a possibility that one of the regulatory agencies may, as part of the mitigation for the environmental impacts of the plant expansion, direct the city to look at the blending issue. Currently, the plant can treat secondary up to about 40 million gallons a day; with the intermediate plan we’d be able to go up to about 55 million gallons a day and with the full design phase we would be able to fully secondary treat up to 72 million gallons a day. There is a possibility that one of the environmental regulators could say, 'you need to do the full secondary treatment'; in other words, “you need to build ASB4.” Notification of this would be made before the city received its' final permitting approval (sometime in the next several months).

Mr. Carlson added that other regulatory aspects that may have to be considered is the permit from the Department of Ecology (DOE), which currently allows the city to blend, We are in the review process of our next permit phase. The other issue from the DOE is the future need for nutrient removal. The city is not required to do that under its' current permit but it’s something that we may need to do in the future. The capacity improvements that are currently being done and including ASB4 will help the city in terms of nutrient removal. Additional capacity that we may have now will be used towards nutrient removal in the future because nutrient removal takes more capacity.

Council Member Fleetwood inquired if the $5 million or other monies could be going to I&I instead of the ASB4.

Mr. Carlson reviewed how the full design was identified in the Sewer Comprehensive Plan, which was based on the population growth estimates at that time and the rate structure that was put in place. Out of the current bond issue the city has set aside $5 million for I&I and staff is proposing another $5 million in the 2014 budget, to be paid for from that bond issue also. The reason for spacing this out is because we want to see the results of the Sunnyland Pilot project. Based on the results of the Sunnyland Pilot Project, we may put more money into I&I.

The ASB4 that staff is asking council to approve is a significant dollar amount but we believe, based on the value analysis, that it is the right thing to do, the right time to do it and a good use of the rate payers money.

Council Member Lilliquist concluded that while this is a really good project, for really good reasons, the city cannot afford it in light of other needs such as the development of the downtown waterfront, Lake Whatcom, and long term upkeep of our pipes and roads.

Council President Snapp was initially opposed to the Sewer Plan, mainly because funding for I&I projects was not there. Since then Public Works has jumped on board with the I&I and he feels that the [Sunnyland] pilot project is a good move. He explained that he was reluctant to support the intermediate phase and does not feel he can support full buildout at this time.

There was additional discussion relating to the capabilities of a Wet Weather Facility combined with improvements to I&I; the capabilities of the plant and how the primary, secondary and blending treatments work.

Mr. Carlson added that the $48 million will provide capacity for 9-16 years. By adding the ASB4, the city will get capacity beyond the 20 year horizon because much of the intermediate phase is not increasing capacity, it is replacing the high purity oxygen with fused air and replacing air mechanical and other equipment at the plant that has reached its lifecycle.
