[HISTORY: Adopted by the City Commission of the City of South Pasadena 9-13-1994 as Ord. No. 94-14. Amendments noted where applicable.]
Cable television franchise — See Ch. A196.
The purpose of this chapter is to adopt local rules and regulations to be used by the city in the regulation of cable television services within the City of South Pasadena.
The City Commission of the City of South Pasadena determined that no effective competition, as that term is defined in the Cable Television Consumer Protection and Competition Act of 1992, exists within the City of South Pasadena, and the city is certified to regulate basic cable rates by the Federal Communications Commission.
The city hereby adopts and incorporates by reference the Cable Television Consumer Protection and Competition Act of 1992 and the rules and regulation of the Federal Communications Commission as set forth in 47 CFR Parts 76 and 78.
Cable operators who violate any provisions of this chapter shall, in addition to the sanctions provided in the Federal Communications Commission rules, be subject to the general penalty provisions of § 1-16 of this Code.
