Mayor Alex Morse wants to give the people of Holyoke better public access television.
The city's current 10-year contract with Comcast will expire in October.
On Wednesday, residents had a chance to give their thoughts about public access TV at a hearing at the Holyoke Senior Center on Pine Street.
"Some of the key things we're looking for in this new contract is: No. 1, a public access channel; No. 2, a community media station downtown funded by Comcast. Also, I want to look into exploring a senior citizen discount," said Morse.
Currently, the city gets 1.5 percent of gross annual revenues to pay for public access TV, and the city wants to negotiate 5 percent in its new contract.
