Chapter 23. Marshfield Cable Television Franchise Ordinance

Sec. 23-08. Procedures

(1) Whenever the City has cause to believe that the Video Service Provider or Cable Operator has violated one or more provisions of this Chapter, a written notice shall be given to said Video Service Provider or Cable Operator informing it of such alleged violation or liability.  The written notice shall describe in reasonable detail the specific violation so as to afford the Video Service Provider or Cable Operator an opportunity to remedy the violation. The Video Service Provider or Cable Operator shall have ten days subsequent to the receipt of the notice in which to correct the violation before the City may impose penalties unless the violation is of such a nature so as to require more than ten days and the Video Service Provider or Cable Operator proceeds diligently within the ten days to correct the violation. In any case where the violation is not cured within ten days of notice from the City, or such other time limit as the Video Service Provider or Cable Operator and the City may mutually agree to, the City may then proceed with a forfeiture action for the uncured violation or violations.

(2) The rights reserved to the City under this section are in addition to all other rights of the City whether reserved by this Chapter or authorized by law or equity, and no action, proceeding or exercise of a right with respect to penalties shall affect any other right the City may have.
