Comcast was granted a 15-year franchise in November 1997, to provide cable television services in Vancouver and Clark County. Under the terms of the franchise agreement, the Commission conducts regular reviews of the cable operator’s performance.

The eight-member Telecommunications Commission is a volunteer citizen board that advises the Vancouver City Council and the Clark County Board of Commissioners on all matters related to the cable television franchise agreement with Comcast.
