The Algona City Council approved a new 10-year franchise agreement with MediaCom cable television during public hearing held in conjunction with its regularly scheduled Monday, Feb. 21 meeting.

The new franchise agreement was based upon the previous 10-year deal and will provide the city with a franchise fee of 5 percent of MediaCom's cable TV revenue in the city. Algona will also receive 30 cents per subscriber per month from the cable company to be used as a grant to help support the city's strong public access TV program which is run by the Algona Community School District.
