Time Warner Cable

 

TWC has filed a yearly document with the FCC covering the period from March 1, 2015 to February 28, 2016.  It is available for your review.  It covers a lot of ground and provides numerous data points, but the net impact to Town of Saugerties residents is that TWC is allowed to charge a maximum montly rate for basic service, of $77.42 and they plan to actually charge a maximum basic service monthly rate of $23.  By way of comparison, this is a $1 per month increase for basic service, over the period from March 1, 2015 to February 28, 2016.  For full details, click here or on the image on the left.

 

The document also covers channels to be provided (seemingly identical to the prior period) and numerous other data points.

A Message to Glasco Water District Customers

A MESSAGE TO GLASCO WATER DISTRICT CUSTOMERS

 

Please read the message about the new Sensus meters and the automatic water meter reading system that is being deployed.  The new meters:

  • Address the problem that the current meter exceed 2014 EPA standards for lead content
  • Only transmit twice per year, when triggered by remote reading devices to obtain meter readings.  There has been miscommunication and confusion, involving comparisons to "smart" electric meters, which transmit almost continuous signals.
