HoCo Puts Cable TV Providers On The Clock

The HoCo Council unanimously approved legislation Monday night that would give cable television providers 15 days to bury temporary lines or face daily civil fines. The Council approved one amendment -- the 15-day limit refers to "working days."

Cable providers can request an extension, of course, and can be permitted delays if weather is a problem. Crews have to leave written notice of the unburied lines.

The new regulations become effective in 61 days.
