Motion: Approve continuance to August 24, 2004, at regular City Council meeting time, Item 1, which was to determine whether a material breach had taken place.
Moved by Petrovich, seconded by Beckstrand.

Mayor Swisher asked for public comments.

Johnnie Giles, Comcast, said there was not time to have proper legal representation because of the late notice. He did not have ample time to review the report prepared by B & B. He was disturbed by how the process rolled out and said he appreciated having the hearing extended so that the two parties could sit down and discuss the issue under less formal proceedings. With regard to the non-compliance issues, Comcast had responded to the City and he believed that Comcast had corrected everything that had been identified. Comcast was going through the process and had been going through the process prior to notice from the City to drive out all locations in the City, both aerial plant and house ground and to begin a corrected plan. He said he was willing to discuss those issues with the City at the earliest convenience.
