Ramsey Washington Cable Commission


A Brief History

Ramsey/Washington Counties Suburban Cable Communications Commission (Commission), made up of 11 northeast suburban municipalities, was created in 1981, and its mission was to perform the cable television franchising process on behalf of those municipalities.  As a result of that process, cable television first arrived in 1983. At that time, the cable company (then Group W of Ramsey/Washington Inc.) agreed as part of its franchise commitment to provide access channels, production equipment, and staffing necessary for local programming.  Eventually, the Commission decided to call that community television operation “Suburban Community Channels (SCC).”


In 1999, the Commission and cable company implemented a renewed franchise agreement that is set to expire in August, 2019.  Negotiations are underway for yet another renewal of franchise.


The cable company ownership changed hands several times in the 1980s and 1990s. Comcast has served as cable operator since 2002.
