The Amherst select board formally closed the ascertainment period of franchise negotiation with Comcast at their Monday, October 5th meeting. During that time they held two public comment sessions and invited the public to submit written comments as well.

Both the September 24 and September 30 sessions are available to watch online and are being shown on channel 17.  

In addition to our video recordings, several media outlets covered the hearings, including reports from the Daily Hampshire Gazette, The Daily Collegian, and the Only in Amherst blog covered both hearings (1, 2).

We at Amherst Media thank those who provided their thoughts and comments.
