Cable Advisory Committee

The Cable Advisory Committee was dissolved by a vote of the Board of Selectmen on September 21, 2015.


Mission Statement:

The purpose of the Cable Advisory Committee (CAC), which is appointed by and reports to the Wayland Board of Selectmen (BoS), is to advise the BoS on all issues relating to cable television (CATV) services provided within the Town.  The BoS is the Issuing Authority that grants CATV franchise licenses to service providers.  The CAC’s principal responsibilities are to negotiate the terms of initial and renewal CATV licenses with service providers, to recommend that the BoS grant such licenses once they are negotiated, and to monitor the performance by the licensees of their obligations under such licenses in order to ensure compliance with license terms and conditions.  The CAC also attempts to resolve disputes brought to its attention between CATV subscribers and CATV service providers.  In addition, the CAC advises and consults with various Town organizations with respect to CATV matters on an ad hoc basis.
