Negotiations between local officials in Tompkins County and Time Warner Cable have hit a wall.
Back in September, city, town and village leaders in Tompkins County decided to team up to get better rates from Time Warner, as part of a franchising agreement the company reaches with municipalities.
But they haven’t heard back from Time Warner in over 3 months.
With cable company Comcast poised to purchase Time Warner, Ithaca city attorney Ari Levine says they’ll now be reaching out to Comcast to get a response.
Local officials are trying to get broader coverage for rural areas and a reduction in rates for county residents.
