RE: City of Calgary request regarding as-built drawings for 2014

Dear Sirs:

On 25 May 2015, Commission staff issued a letter in which it closed an application by Bell Canada, MTS Inc., Allstream Inc., Rogers Communication Partnership, Shaw Cablesystems G.P. (Shaw) and TELUS Communications Company (TCC) (collectively, the Carriers) based on the understanding that the parties had expressed a commitment to resolve outstanding issues related to terms in their expired Municipal Access Agreements.

By letter to the Commission dated 31 July 2015, the City of Calgary (the City) requested Commission direction with regard to the provision of as-built drawings of the Carriers’ installations completed during the course of 2014 (the as-built drawings). The City stated that in a report to the Commission dated 8 April 2015, the Carriers agreed to, among other things, provide the as-built drawings to the City by no later than 15 July 2015.

The City stated that as of the date of its letter, Bell Canada, Shaw and TCC had not submitted the as-built drawings by the previously agreed-upon date of 15 July 2015, and requested that the Commission direct the Carriers to submit the as-built drawings forthwith.

By letter dated 21 August 2015, TCC filed, in confidence, its response to the City’s request.

By letter dated 26 August 2015Footnote 1, the City stated that no further action was requested from the Commission with respect to Bell Canada and Shaw. The City did however request that the Commission direct TCC to provide, by 2 September 2015, the outstanding as-built drawings for installations which occurred in 2014. The City also noted that significant progress has been made towards meeting the goal of receiving all outstanding as-built drawings completed in 2014.

The City and TCC are to report back to the Commission by 4 September 2015 a mutually agreed exact number of TCC’s outstanding as-built drawings for installations which occurred in 2014. TCC is to provide to the City, by 18 September 2015, the outstanding 2014 as-built drawings.
