The City of Savage contracts with Mediacom Communications Corporation and Integra Telecom to deliver cable television service to residents and businesses within Savage. The contract is known as a franchise agreement, as defined by the Cable Act of 1984. Under the cable franchise agreement, Mediacom and Integra pay the City for locating the cable system in public right of ways. These funds, known as franchise fees, form the City's Cable Television Fund. A portion of the funds are used to support programming on the City's PEG (Public, Education, Government) access channels. No general levy taxpayer funds are used for PEG Access operations.
