(a)   Council hereby establishes a Video Service Provider fee that is calculated by applying a Video Service Provider Fee (VSP fee) percentage of five percent (5%) to the video service provider’s gross revenues as defined in Ohio R.C. 1332.32(B).  For purposes of calculating the VSP fee, the provider’s gross revenues shall include advertising revenues in accordance with Ohio R.C. 1332.32(B)(2)(g).  The VSP fee percentage and gross revenues definition as modified by this section, shall apply equally to all video service providers and cable television operators providing video service in the City.
   (b)   The VSP fee shall be paid by each video service provider providing service in the City on a quarterly basis, but not sooner than forty-five days nor later than sixty days after the end of each calendar quarter pursuant to Ohio R.C. 1332.32(A).
   (c)   The City Manager is authorized and directed to provide any video service provider with notice of the VSP fee percentage and gross revenues definition as set forth above, which notice shall be given by certified mail, upon receipt of notice from such video service provider that it will begin providing video service in the City pursuant to a State-issued video service authorization.  (Ord. 2007-177.  Passed 12-27-07.)
