SHARPSBURG - The Sharpsburg area will continue to get its cable service from Adelphia for at least two more years.
The Sharpsburg Town Council voted 5-0 on Monday night to renew the town's franchise agreement with Adelphia.
High-speed Internet access could be installed before Thanksgiving at Sharpsburg's library, fire hall, ambulance hall and elementary school, an Adelphia spokesman told the mayor and Town Council at Monday night's regular monthly meeting.
The town's cable agreement was going to expire Dec. 31.
Adelphia sent the town a letter earlier this year inquiring about a five-year deal and town officials decided at October's meeting to inquire about a one-year extension.
After hearing Adelphia spokesman Brian Burger explain about upcoming changes at Adelphia, Town Attorney Charles Wagaman suggested the council approve a two-year deal.
