Wi-Fi hot spots planned for City of Tonawanda parks

For City of Tonawanda park users, it's about to get easier to log on outdoors.

The city has penned a tentative 15-year franchise agreement with Spectrum Cable which will give the city an increase in annual franchise fees as well as new perks, including plans to put Wi-Fi in parks and other public spaces.

Mayor Rick Davis said the agreement with Time Warner expired eight years ago and when Spectrum took over they decided it was time to pursue a new agreement. The new agreement will give the city an additional $14,000 per year in franchise fees, which will be added to the current $100,000 annual fee, said Davis.

Davis said as part of the agreement Spectrum will provide service to a handful of homes that don't have access to cable and are also working out the logistics to add Wi-Fi for current Spectrum customers in the city's recreational areas.
