The purpose of this chapter is to specify requirements for the establishment, construction, operation and maintenance of a cable system in the city pursuant to I.C.A. Ch. 364 and applicable federal law. If a new applicant submits a proposal acceptable to the grantor, meets the requirements of this chapter and those of the Federal Communications Commission, and receives a majority of the votes cast in a franchise election, the grantor may then proceed to enter into a non-exclusive franchise agreement with such prospective grantee, subject to the provisions of this chapter. If the incumbent operator submits a proposal acceptable under the terms of the Cable Act of 1992, as amended, and meets the requirements of the Federal Communications Commission, the city shall proceed to fulfill its obligations under § 626 of the Cable Act of 1992.
