Sec. 4.5-1.  Scope and applicability.
   This chapter governs the regulation of cable television rates for basic service and equipment for any cable operator providing service in the city subject to regulations under the Act. This chapter is intended to be consistent with FCC regulations, and the city intends to administer these regulations consistent with those regulations, as required by the Act, 47 U.S.C. § 543(b). Likewise, it is the city's intention that the cable operator be bound by the FCC regulations to the extent allowed by law. For purposes of this chapter, "basic service" or "basic cable service," and "cable operator" have the same meaning as defined by the Act and FCC regulations. "Operator" shall have the same meaning as "cable operator."
