It was noted that there were no speakers on this item; therefore, the public hearing was concluded.

WHEREUPON, upon motion by Councilwoman Pepper, seconded by Council Member Walker and carried on a unanimous ROLL-CALL vote, City Council (1) held the public hearing on the matter of the rate filing submitted on July 31 by Jones Intercable; and (2) following the public hearing, issued a tolling order by approving, on a roll-call vote, the resolution which will allow staff 90 additional days, under the FCC's regulations and Section 9-3-208 of the City Code, to review the Jones rate filing and determine whether the proposed rate increase is excessive. The tolling order (which extends the staff review period from 30 days to 120 days), recognizes the fact that the rate increase for basic cable service went into effect on September 1, subject to a refund should Council determine that it is excessive in accordance with the FCC regulations. The voting was as follows:

Pepper "aye" Donley "aye"
Walker "aye" Cleveland "aye"
Ticer "aye" Euille "aye"
Rich "aye"

The resolution reads as follows:

WHEREAS, the City Council has received and preliminarily reviewed: (1) the rate filing of Jones Intercable of Alexandria, Inc. ("Jones") , submitted pursuant to section 9-3-201 et seq. of the Alexandria City Code, in which Jones seeks the City of Alexandria's approval to increase the rate it is currently charging its Alexandria residents for basic cable television service from $9.79 to $10.42 (an increase of $.63); (2) comments submitted by members of the public on the rate filing; (3) the recommendation of the City Manager; and (4) Jones' response to the public comments and the recommendation of the City Manager; and

WHEREAS, in light of the brief time that the City Council, the City staff and the public have had to review Jones' rate filing and to evaluate matters relevant to determining whether Jones' basic cable rate increase proposal is justified and complies with the Federal Communications Commission's rate standard; and

WHEREAS, the City Council finds and determines that it needs additional time and information in order for it to review Jones' rate filing and to determine whether Jones' increase in the basic cable rate complies with the Federal Communications Commission's rate standard;
NOW, THEREFORE, BE IT RESOLVED BY THE CITY COUNCIL
OF THE CITY OF ALEXANDRIA, VIRGINIA

1. That the deadline for the City's review of Jones' rate filing shall be tolled for an additional 90 days, as provided in section 9-3-208 of the Alexandria City Code.

8


2 That the $.63 increase in the rate that Jones implemented effective September 1, 1995 for Alexandria's basic cable television Service without the prior approval of the City Council is subject to refund.

3. That the current rates that Jones charges Alexandria residents for basic cable television service and for the use of related equipment shall be collected by Jones in accordance with applicable law, and that Jones shall maintain adequate records to enable it to refund to subscribers any amounts later determined to be unreasonable, plus interest.

4. That nothing in this resolution shall be construed as approving or endorsing the current rate that Jones charges Alexandria residents for basic cable television service and for the use of related equipment, and that the Council may subsequently order a reduction in those rates to the extent they are found to violate any FCC regulation or other applicable laws, regulations or contracts.

6. That the City Manager shall see that public notice is given of the adoption by Council of this resolution and of its availability for review by the public.



New Business Item No. 1: Jeff Spiegleman, General Manager, Jones Intercable, spoke to the opening of the Central Processing Facility located on Wheeler Avenue.
