BURLINGTON, Vt. --Burlington's proposal to own and operate its own
cable television system is moving forward.

Burlington Telecom is seeking a certificate of public good from the
Vermont Public Service Board.

On Friday, Adelphia Communications, the sole provider of cable
television programming to Burlington residents, did not request any
additional oral arguments in the case.

A board hearing officer last week recommended to the board that
Burlington receive a certificate. Parties to the application -- the
city, Adelphia and the New England Cable & Telecommunications
Association -- had until Friday to file written comment about the
hearing officer's findings or request additional oral argument.

Friday, both the city and Adelphia sent written comments, but neither
side requested oral argument.
