31.52.010 Services for customers with disabilities.

(a)    For any subscriber with a disability or who is otherwise mobility-impaired the cable operator shall at no charge deliver and pick up converters and other cable operator equipment at the subscriber’s home. In the case of a malfunctioning converter or such other equipment, the technician shall provide another converter or such other equipment, hook it up and ensure that it is working properly, and shall return the defective converter or such other equipment to the cable operator.

(b)    A cable operator shall work cooperatively with any services that allow hearing-impaired subscribers to contact the cable operator by telephone. (Ord. 4207 § 1 (part), 2009)

31.52.020 Notice/work.

Except in the case of an emergency involving public safety or service interruption to a large number of subscribers, the cable operator shall give reasonable notice to property owners or legal tenants prior to entering upon private premises, and the notice shall specify the work to be performed. In the case of an emergency, however, the cable operator shall attempt to contact the property owner or legal tenant in person, and shall leave a door hanger notice in the event personal contact is not made. Nothing herein shall be construed as authorizing access or entry to private property. Any work on private property shall be conducted in accordance with an agreement between the cable operator and the property owner. If damage is caused by any cable operator activity, the cable operator shall reimburse the property owner one hundred percent of the cost of the damage or replace or repair the damaged property to as good a condition as before the cable operator’s activity commenced. Affected property owners shall be notified in advance of major construction or installation projects in adjacent rights-of-way. (Ord. 4207 § 1 (part), 2009)
