Prior to the discussion, 3 residents spoke during public commentary in support of re-establishing a Cable Committee. During the discussion of the topic, one Bedford Township Board member made some very misleading and inaccurate statements concerning the chain of events that occurred in 2005-2006 regarding the “franchise fees” that were not being paid to Bedford Public Schools from 2002 to 2006, as called for in the agreement with Buckeye Cable. This person also made some very wild accusations directed toward individuals in the Bedford Community as stating that ”The same persons who have caused problems in the past are bringing it up again” in regards to the topic of Buckeye Cable. The Township Board agreed to add the topic of the "Cable Committee" to the agenda for their December 1, 2015 meeting.
