Montgomery County created the Cable Communications Fund as a special non-tax revenue fund.  The Cable Communications Fund receives revenues from cable franchise fees received from cable operators who occupy the County’s public rights-of-way and Transmission Facilities Coordinating Group application fees received from telecommunications companies seeking to place wireless communications antennas and towers in the County. The purpose of creating the special fund was to facilitate the ability of the County to support, enhance and expand communications services.  The Office of Cable and Broadband Services is responsible for managing the Cable Communications Fund.
