Town of Southeast officials are expected to pass a resolution this evening protesting Comcast's decision to close the Carmel office.
That's according to the agenda for tonight's meeting, which will include a regular and work session beginning at 7 at the civic center on Route 22.
The resolution states that the agreement between the town and the cable company calls for "an office in a convenient location in the town, or in the general geographical area that includes the town."
Signs at the Old Route 6 office read:
To our valued customers,
The Carmel service center will close effective April 6, 2013. An enhanced XFinity Service Center will reopen on April 8, located at Danbury Customer Service Center, Danbury Square, 15 Backus Avenue, Danbury, CT 06810. Customers can make payments via US Mail or Internet. For added convenience customers can also contact us by visiting: Speak with a customer care representative at 1-800-934-6489 and online at www.comcast.com
Staff members in Carmel Thursday were unable to comment on the move. Patch's attempts to reach a spokesperson were unsuccessful. The company provides services in parts of Dutchess, Putnam and Westchester counties.
A formal complaint with Comcast and the New York State Public Service Commission will be filed because of the "breach of agreement," according to the town.
The agenda—which also lists an amended bond resolution for the Fox Hill Water District, and the supervisor's monthly report—is available here.
