Follow Up: St. Charles Parish & Cox

The Times-Picayune reports on the latest St. Charles parish expression of discontent with Cox Communications. The parish council is asking citizens to show up at their meeting and let them know what they think of Cox. (Cox’s contract ends on December 31st.)

From the story:

The council, spurred by citizens’ complaints about the company, passed a resolution in February saying they want another cable company to apply for a cable TV franchise.

If Lafayette’s experience is any guide the council should expect the room to be packed with uniformed Cox employees who arrive in company trucks.

What the NOLA story does not mention is that back when this all blew up two of the council members were advocating municipal competition a la Lafayette and had met with represetatives from the city across the basin.

It should be interesting to see what comes of all this.
