Adopted:  October 28, 2003            Released:  October 29, 

By the Chief, Enforcement Bureau:

     1.   We hereby deny Georgia Power Company's (``Georgia 
Power'') petition1 seeking reconsideration of six aspects of the 
Order the Enforcement Bureau released on August 8, 2003  in the 
above-captioned proceeding.2  The Order partially granted a 
complaint filed by the Cable Television Association of Georgia 
and certain of its members (collectively, ``Cable Operators'') 
against Georgia Power pursuant to section 224(b)(1) of the 
Communications Act of 1934, as amended (``Act'').3  The Order 
found, inter alia, that certain of the terms and conditions of 
attachment imposed by Georgia Power in its standard pole 
attachment agreement are unjust and unreasonable, and required 
Georgia Power to bargain in good faith with the Cable Operators 
regarding just and reasonable replacement terms.  In its 
Petition, Georgia Power asks the Bureau to reconsider the Order's 
determinations relating to (1) routine pole inspections; (2) 
make-ready; (3) rights-of-way; (4)indemnity; (5) force majure; 
and (6) rate adjustments.4

     2.   We have carefully reviewed the pleadings related to the 
Petition,5 as well as the underlying record.  Georgia Power has 
presented no information or argument that warrants a change in 
the Order's conclusions regarding the six pole attachment 
agreement provisions at issue.6

     3.   Accordingly, IT IS ORDERED, pursuant to section 405 of 
the Act, 47 U.S.C.  405, and sections 0.111, 0.311 and 1.106(j) 
of the Commission's rules, 47 C.F.R.  0.111, 0.311, 1.106(j), 
that Georgia Power's Petition for Reconsideration IS DENIED.
