League Endorsed Programs
The Alabama League of Municipalities sponsors a technical services program designed to assist member municipalities with cable franchise management. The goals of the program are to ensure that local governments have access to the expertise required to negotiate for the benefits and services needed in our communities on reasonable terms and conditions. The program is administered by Local Government Services, LLC. In return for a nominal fee, which is usually based on a municipality's population, cities and towns can obtain those services.
