City plans hearings on cable rate hike

After a discussion at the Jan. 12 Albion City Council meeting, the city has scheduled two public hearings on a cable television rate increase that is scheduled to take place in February, 2016.
The city apparently has no authority over the local cable rates, but will hold a hearing Feb. 9 at 7:30 p.m. for an explanation by Eagle Communications.
A second hearing is scheduled for March 8 at 7:30 p.m. to allow public comment on the rate increase.
