   Released: April 11, 2013

   By the District Director,  Atlanta  Office, South Central Region,
   Enforcement Bureau:

    1. This is a Notice of Violation (Notice) issued pursuant to Section 1.89
       of the Commission's rules (Rules)^ to Troy CableVision, Inc. (Troy
       CableVision), operator of a cable system in Troy, Alabama.  Pursuant
       to Section 1.89(a) of the Rules, issuance of this Notice does not
       preclude the Enforcement Bureau from further action if warranted,
       including issuing a Notice of Apparent Liability for Forfeiture for
       the violation(s) noted herein.^

    2. On April 2, 2013, an agent of the Enforcement Bureau's Atlanta Office
       inspected  the Troy CableVision cable system located at 1006 S
       Brundidge St  Troy, Alabama , and observed the following violation(s):

   47 C.F.R. S 76.1701:   "(a) Every cable television system shall keep and
   permit public inspection of a complete and orderly record (political file)
   of all requests for cablecast time made by or on behalf of a candidate for
   public office, together with an appropriate notation showing the
   disposition made by the system of such requests, and the charges made, if
   any, if the request is granted. The `disposition' includes the schedule of
   time purchased, when spots actually aired, the rates charged, and the
   classes of time purchased." At the time of inspection, Troy Cablevision's
   representative responsible for the political file was unavailable and
   other representatives were unable to locate the political file. A copy of
   the political file was provided to the agent on April 9, 2013.

    3. Pursuant to Section  403  of the Communications Act of 1934, as
       amended,^ and Section 1.89 of the Rules, we seek additional
       information concerning the violations and any remedial actions taken.
       Therefore, CableVision, must submit a written statement concerning

       the specific action(s) taken to correct each violation and preclude
       recurrence, and (iii) must include a time line for completion of any
       pending corrective action(s). The response must be complete in itself
       and must not be abbreviated by reference to other communications or
       answers to other notices.^

       support its response to this Notice with an affidavit or declaration
       under penalty of perjury, signed and dated by an authorized officer of

       information therein,^ and confirming that all of the information
       requested by this Notice which is in the licensee's possession,
       custody, control, or knowledge has been produced. To knowingly and
       willfully make any false statement or conceal any material fact in
       reply to this Notice is punishable by fine or imprisonment under Title
       18 of the U.S. Code.^
