The Lexington Fayette Urban County Council last night approved a resolution giving Spectrum Cable and its parent company Charter Communications a month to respond to a list of service complaints or face fines. 

Council Member Bill Farmer says, despite a public forum in August, complaints have continued, citing intermittent broadband service, problems with channel accessibility, and unexplained charges.

The Lexington Urban County Council is expected to give Spectrum cable a month to make improvements in various services or face the possibility of fines.

After a closed session Tuesday, council voted to put a resolution on its Thursday agenda to give legal notice to provider of cable TV and broadband services. 


The number of cable television concerns expressed by Lexington residents is causing concern for some city leaders.  While the city continues negotiations for a renewed agreement with Time Warner Cable, Council member Harry Clark says some of the citizen comments made at a recent public hearing were ‘horrifying.’  “This is not sufficient for Lexington Kentucky.  I mean we value the quality of life in a lot of ways, and this is a standard that we ought to be providing for all of our citizens who are interested in cable,” said Clark.
